The Lady from the Sea
by Filigree Theatre

Jul. 25 - Jul. 31 (2022)

Norway, 1888. A small town by a land-locked fjord. Ellida is second wife to widower Dr. Wangel and step-mother to his two grown daughters, Bolette and Hilde. Ellida is haunted by her uncanny connection with the ocean and its changing tides. When a mysterious past love returns from the sea to re-claim Ellida, she must choose between the suffocating safety of the shore and the thrilling danger of the unknown and the ocean deep.



by Henrik Ibsen (Trans. Rolf Fjelde)

 Directed by Elizabeth V. Newman
