The Lyttelton National Theatre welcomes George Bernard Shaw’s classic play “The Doctor’s Dilemma” to its stage as part of its 2012 season, bringing to the capital a production that first appeared in London back in 1906. On this occasion Tom Burke, Aden Gillett and Genevieve O'Reilly are among those that will bring to life this classic show whilst Nadia Fall takes on directing duties. It should be an opportunity for those with theatre tickets to witness a classic show in the confines of the Nation’s most prestigious venue with some talented performers and creative minds working behind the scenes.
“The Doctor’s Dilemma” is just that; a story of a doctor faced with a compelling dilemma after developing a new tuberculosis treatment. As it is experimental he must not use the treatment on more than ten patients so when Jennifer Dubedat arrives on the scene her persuasiveness forces him to add her sick husband to the list of patients. But this comes at the expense of someone else and when Dubedat displays questionable morality he must decide if he has made the right decision.
In a season that is also bringing us the likes of “The Last of the Haussmans” to the Lyttelton National Theatre, “The Doctor’s Dilemma” is a chance to witness the work of a well known writer and a play that is more than a century old.
“The Doctor’s Dilemma” is at the Lyttelton National Theatre from Tuesday 17th July 2012 to Wednesday 12th September 2012.
