Doktor Glas

The Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End is regularly the home of some stand-out plays and come April 2013 this will be in the form of Hjalmer Soderberg’s “Doktor Glas”, which will feature Krister Henriksson in the lead role. The Swedish story, which first appeared as a novel, is adapted to the stage by Allan Edwall and it is likely to attract considerable interest, particularly as it is a follow-up to “Quartermaine’s Terms” at the venue from April to May.

In “Doktor Glas” audiences are transported back to Sweden in the 19th century where they are introduced to the title character, a physician who falls in love with a woman who has asked for help improving her sex life. The woman is the young wife of a corrupt clergyman, Reverend Gregorius, and this should prove that the play heads to a memorable climax, all whilst Glas is faced with a dilemma in choosing between his heart and his morals.
The book was controversial in its time for dealing with contentious subjects, which has helped it to remain in the public consciousness.

And on this occasion it will be Krister Henriksson who is making his way to the stage to star in the production. The Swedish actor, who is well known for playing Kurt Wallander on television, will make his West End stage debut. His other credits include the likes of “Solstorm” and stage shows like “Peer Gynt” at the Stockholm City Theatre.

Henriksson will also lend his skills to directing the project and he does so alongside Peder Bjurman.

“Doktor Glas” is at the Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End with theatre tickets available for dates running from Thursday 18th April 2013 (previews from Tuesday 16th April 2013).
