About Doktor Glas
Krister Henriksson, who is best known as Wallander in Henning Mankell’s widely praised Swedish TV series, will make his West End debut in Doktor Glas, which transfers to London following its acclaimed run at Sweden’s National Theatre. Adapted from the classic novel by Hjalmar Söderberg and performed in its original Swedish with English surtitles, Doktor Glas will run at the Wyndham’s Theatre, a Delfont Macintosh Theatre, from 16 April to 11 May 2013.
Doktor Glas tells the story of a 19th century physician who falls madly in love with the beautiful young wife of a corrupt clergyman. When she confides in him that her marriage is making her miserable, he agrees to help in whatever way he can. Soon Doktor Glas finds himself torn between his passion and his morality, and drives the play towards its shocking climax.
