Synopsis


“But if Eyolf had never been born?”


Alfred Allmers returns from the mountains to his wife Rita having made an important decision.


Abandoning his vocation as a writer he will instead dedicate himself to caring for his disabled son.


With an obsessive attachment to his sister Asta; her potential relationship with a road maker and the mysterious nature of a rat luring woman, it is the devastation of one tragic event which changes his life forever.


Ibsen's rarely performed masterpiece Little Eyolf is a haunting, explosive portrayal of a marriage in crisis, examining motherhood, death, grief and the possibilities of hope.
