A Fortunate Man
In 2017, Michael will work on a new theatre piece inspired by John Berger’s book, A Fortunate Man. For this seminal 1967 publication, writer John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr documented the work of John Sassall, an English country doctor. Now to mark its 50th anniversary, we want to explore parallels between the original book and the NHS today. Michael will work with photographer, Julian Hughes, and a company of emerging artists from the East Midlands on the project. Supported by New Perspectives, the project will run from April to September 2017.
