The Lady from the Sea
By Ibsen, adapted by Pam Gems
Directed by Jeremy Thomas Poulsen
The stranger’s return was Ellida’s worst fear. After a mysterious lost love resurfaces, Ellida Wangel, a young wife in the midst of marital turmoil, struggles to act “of her own free will” when faced with the choice between her family and her heart. Ibsen’s psychological drama explores the plight of nineteenth century women through Ellida’s difficult dilemma.
