Background


To mark the 130th anniversary of The Lady from the Sea, the venue is collaborating with the Norwegian Ibsen Company for this new staging, which brings with it a deep connection to the Norwegian culture in which Ibsen lived: from its close relationship with nature, to the effect of the midnight sun on its inhabitants in the far north.


With performers and creatives from both UK and Norway, The Lady in the Sea follows the Print Room's hugely successful 2018 collaboration with National Theatre of Norway, Little Eyolf, with many of the team returning for this shattering new production.


Performed in English and Norwegian with English surtitles.


Synopsis


Ellida, a lighthouse keeper's daughter, was born where the fjord meets the ocean.


Now trapped in a difficult marriage to a British doctor, Ellida longs for the open sea.


Will the return of a former lover offer her a real choice?


A story of self-determination, modern families, loving other people's children, and always looking for the perfect relationship, The Lady from the Sea was shocking in its challenge of societal norms when it premiered in 1889.
