M1 Fringe Festival 2019 - A Fortunate Man by New Perspectives
A FORTUNATE MAN NEW PERSPECTIVES (UNITED KINGDOM)
Asian Premiere at Protected content
60 mins with no intermission
50 years ago, the visionary writer John Berger and Swiss photographer Jean Mohr published A Fortunate Man, a meditation on the role of a doctor that is still widely read by healthcare practitioners today. The book followed the daily life of English country general practitioner John Sassall, witnessing his compassion as well as his practice as a physician through storytelling and photography.
15 years after the book’s publication, John 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 a stage exploration of the book, interposing it with interviews with medical practitioners today.
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.
