The Doctor's Dilemma

A special studio recording of the Almeida Theatre's acclaimed, fast and funny 1998 production of Bernard Shaw's famous play, which reveals the piece as a love story of great passion and a psychological thriller, as well as an intensely dramatic expression of the kind of dilemmas that still face the medical profession as awkwardly and acutely as when the play was written in 1906.

Cast: Laurence Mitchell, Patsy Byrne, Ian McDiarmid, Toby Salaman, Bernard Horsfall, Martin Jarvis, Tony Britton, Robert Demeger, Victoria Kamilton, James Callis, Harriet Cater and Simon Scott.

Directed by Michael Grandage.
