A powerful and poignant tribute

Fifty years ago, writer John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr followed the working life of a country doctor, for what went on to become one of the most important books about medical practice.

Today, New Perspectives collaborates with theatre-maker Michael Pinchbeck to explore and expand on this fascinating work, setting it against verbatim interviews with doctors today. This striking mixed media performance takes the pulse of GP practice then and now, continuing the conversation in the 70th year of the NHS.

See this brand new hour long production fresh from a week in London, before it heads to Edinburgh Festival.

"Michael Pinchbeck is a terrific theatre maker" Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
