Thomas Ostermeier said: “It’s a privilege to be starting rehearsals in the West End for the first time with a cast of this calibre, joining Matt Smith as Thomas Stockmann. I look forward to rediscovering the brilliance of Ibsen’s prescient masterpiece with this incredible group of actors as we build an English language production for London.”

Doubt spreads faster than disease in Ibsen’s thought-provoking play about truth in a society driven by power and money.

When Dr Stockmann makes an unbelievable discovery about the healing waters in his local baths, he holds the future of the town in his hands, but those with everything to lose refuse to accept his word. As the battle goes beyond contaminated water, barriers are broken in this contemporary production as Ostermeier shows us why this perennial classic will be relevant forever.

The production has been adapted by Thomas Ostermeier and Florian Borchmeyer, conceived and directed by Thomas Ostermeier and is originally produced by Schaubühne Berlin. David Binder Productions and Wessex Grove present the new West End production.
