Revival. A twentieth century masterpiece in which a doctor takes over a run down country practice and employs his special gifts to transform everyone and everything. First played in Paris by Louis Jouvert in 1923. In 1979 it was the first of the Orange Tree's 'discoveries' when a sell-out run played to delighted and overflowing houses. Geoffrey Beevers again plays Knock and Sam Walters directs this landmark of French Theatre. 'It is much more a satire on public credulity than professional quackery... a much more wounding satire than Shaw's... Sam Walters' production and Geoffrey Beevers' central performance get it dead right' The Guardian.
