in The Pool of Bethesda Image Description

Dr Pearce works at St Bartholomew’s Hospital in London and often stops to gaze at an enormous canvas called “The Pool of Bethesda” – the painting depicts Christ healing sick believers in the pool in Jerusalem whenever an angel stirs the water. He’s been having headaches lately and his reality becomes a dizzying journey flitting between the present and the period of Hogarth’s painting. This multi-layered play explores Dr Pearce’s relationship with the women in his life, the sick and most of all himself. Directed by Mark Thomson.

Showing at the Citizens' Theatre, Glasgow, from 19th until 23rd May, and at the Courtyard Theatre, London on 6th June.
