A Fortunate Man at Camden People's Theatre

From to


A powerful and poignant tribute, marking the 70th anniversary of the NHS. Fifty years ago artist, visionary and writer John Berger and Swiss photographer Jean Mohr published A Fortunate Man. What they revealed about the life of English country GP John Sassall remains as fresh, urgent and relevant in 2018. "A masterpiece of witness: a moving meditation on humanity, society and the value of healing" - The Guardian on 'A Fortunate Man' We follow two narratives, the life of Dr John Sassall, culminating in his suicide in 1982 and the story of a doctor's daily routine today - woven together to compare and contrast the ways in which doctors worked then and now. Through a combination of Berger's words, Mohr's images, archive film footage and contemporary reportage, New Perspectives collaborate with writer and theatre-maker Michael Pinchbeck to create a new multi-media performance that takes the pulse of the NHS today. "Pinchbeck is a terrific theatre maker" - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
