|What does it mean to be free? – free to learn? free to choose? – to be truly independent?|
Ellida – second wife to Doctor Wangel – must decide between her current life, sheltered by her marriage in a coastal fjord town, or an uncertain life with her former lover on the open sea.
What is our ‘true life’? What defines a ‘real marriage’? Or a ‘happy ending’?
Are we creatures of the land? creatures of the sea? or creatures of habit?
A fresh translation of one of Ibsen’s most uncharacteristic plays in a critically-conscious production that questions the decisions and compromises we make to survive.
See anything adapted by Strangio. The text is infinitely simple and artful, and honours the original.
– Sarah W, The Plus Ones 2016, on The Lover
No Australian director is as attuned to Duras’ work as Laurence Strangio. … brilliant theatre, pure and simple.
– Cameron Woodhead, The Age 2016, on L’amante anglaise
