The King’s Physician
In a new adaptation.
King Christian VII is unhinged. Johann Struensee, a infamous Physician, is called for but whilst attending his patient he is thrown into contact with the Kings wife, Mathilde. Forbidden passions simmer and despite violent resistance a burning affair unfolds that neither the king or his people can bring down.
Sex, power and dangerous loyalties; a fascinating affair of state.
“Absolutely compelling, hovering brilliantly and most strangely between bald historical fact and poetic fiction…Yet though one knows how it will end, it still grips with pity and terror, and intrigues through its psychological shadings.”
“Enquist, a celebrated Swedish novelist, turns this actual historical incident into an enthralling fable of the temptations of power — and a powerful love story.”
