What does it mean to be free? To be truly independent?

Ellida, a lighthouse keeper s daughter is living a life of quiet desperation with her husband Dr Wangel in a coastal fjord town when a stranger from her past arrives, upsetting the fragile equilibrium she and Wangel had created.

In Ellida, Henrick Ibsen further explores themes found in his earlier work, challenging and exposing the conventions of marriage and society with biting satire, subtle humour and an ending that raises as many questions as it resolves.

Are we creatures of the land? Creatures of the sea? Or creatures of habit?

The pull of the tide meets the stability of the land in this fresh adaptation by May-Brit Akerholt of Ibsen s The Lady From the Sea. Questions of freedom and responsibility, conformity and independence, emotion and rationality prove as startlingly contemporary and relevant as when Ibsen first penned the play in 1888.
