    I knew the story of Dr Semmelweis , but what an amazing play, combining standout performances from the actors with music and ballet.

    This was such an imaginative and haunting production, I will always remember it. Sir Mark Rylance gave such a passionate performance, that the character's tragic decline into madness was absolutely heart-wrenching to watch. I feel as if I learned so much - about Dr. Semmelweiss and his discovery that handwashing was an essential step in any medical examination. It's extremely sad that his story is not better known and that his peers were so unwilling to accept his findings that he ended up in an asylum. It is so fitting in the aftermath of Covid, that his story has been revived and retold.
