Krister Henriksson makes his West End debut in a new production of Hjalmar Söderberg's classic epistolary novel Doktor Glas, which transfers to London following a series of acclaimed runs in Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Set in Stockholm during the 1950's, the controversial story follows Doktor Tyko Gabriel Glas, a disaffected young physician who falls madly in love with the beautiful young wife of corrupt clergyman, Reverend Gregorius. When she confides in him that her loveless marriage is making her unhappy, he agrees to help in whatever way he can, despite the fact that she is already in an adulterous relationship.
Soon Doktor Glas finds himself torn between his passion and his morality, agreeing to murder the Reverend in order to set the woman he loves free.
Doktor Glas will be performed in its original Swedish with English surtitles.
