About the Show/Event

Dr Semmelweis
Find the best Dr Semmelweis play tickets at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol. Based on the true story of Dr Ignaz Semmelweis. A radical creative of the medical profession, Semmelweis' rejection of received wisdom dared him to look at the world differently and held the potential to save countless lives. But when the medical establishment questions his methods, rejects his theory and doubts his sanity, the controversial surgeon finds that being a pioneer is not enough. Years later, he is haunted by the ghosts of the women he failed to save. Is it too late to convince the medical establishment to see the truth? And if he tries what will be the cost? World Premiere
