Doktor Glas

Krister Henriksson, who is best know as Wallander in Henning Mankell's widely praised Swedish TV series, is making his West End debut in Doktor Glas. Doktor Glas is transferring to London's Wyndham's Theatre following an acclaimed run in Sweden.



The classic play Doktor Glas tells the story of a 19th century physician who falls madly in love with the beautiful young wife of a corrupt clergyman. When she confides in him that her marriage is making her miserable, he agrees to help in whatever way he can. Soon Doktor Glas finds himself torn between his passion and his morality, and drives the play towards its shocking climax.



Performed in its original Swedish with English subtitles.
