The Lady From The Sea
- by Henrik Ibsen
- directed by Erin Kraft
- translated by Pam Gems
- Ellida Wangel has a secret. Her marriage is on the rocks, and a former flame haunts her. When a mysterious stranger arrives, Ellida's fears and desires come to the surface. She must decide once and for all where she belongs—should she embrace her connections on land or succumb to the siren song of the sea?
- Themes: Erin Kraft, MFA Directing, Class of 2017, directs this rarely produced Ibsen work and dives in the meaning of partnership and independence.When we struggle with affairs of the heart, what barriers do we construct between ourselves, each other, and happiness?
