Event Details

50 years ago, the visionary writer John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr published A Fortunate Man, which followed the daily life of English country general practitioner John Sassall, witnessing his compassion, and meditating on the role of a doctor.

15 years after the book’s publication, Sassall took his own life. Taking this tragic event as a starting point, New Perspectives teams up with acclaimed theatre maker Michael Pinchbeck to create an expressionistic explosion of the book—a powerful interrogation about the passions and pressures of being a doctor in the modern world.

Part theatre-lecture, part expressionistic explosion of the book, A Fortunate Man is a powerful and poignant interrogation about the passions and pressures of being a doctor in the modern world and what that says about the future health of our society.
