The English director and author Robert Icke is known for his remarkable adaptations and stagings of classic texts. His adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler’s PROFESSOR BERNHARDI (premiered in Berlin in 1912) focuses on Dr Ruth Wolff, a secular Jew and head of a renowned clinic for Alzheimer patients.

Because she refuses a priest access to a dying girl, she finds herself at the centre of a media witch hunt that brings to light the complex relationships and intricacies of medical ethics, economic pressure, identity policy and toxic public discourse. 

Robert Icke wrote THE DOCTOR for London’s Almeida Theatre in 2019. He is now directing the first German-language version of the play at the Burgtheater.
