The Lady From The Sea (1888) marked a turning-point in Ibsen’s writing career as it, and the plays that followed it, concerned itself more with individual destinies than with general moral or social principles. In this new translation, Pam Gems (best known for plays such as Piaf, Stanley, Camille and Dusa, Fish, Stas and Vi) gives this classic drama a refreshing new life. The Lady From The Sea was performed at the Almeida Theatre, 8th May 2003.

The final thrilling chapter in the Tristan and Isolde trilogy . . . Isolde, heir to the throne of the queens, is now a sovereign in her own right. With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle. She can no longer tolerate her marriage to King Mark of Cornwall, a marriage she has accepted for years in order to save her country from the threat of war and to be near her only love, Mark’s nephew Tristan of Lyonesse. King Mark, always cowardly and spiteful, is too heavily influenced by his monks and counselors, who loathe the powerful and independent Isolde. And so she leaves Cornwall for good and comes home to Ireland, where her lords face a growing threat from the warlike Picti, who live in the barren highlands to the north of England. The Picti have a bold new king, Darath, who is determined to take the riches of Ireland for his own people, whether by war or by marriage with Isolde. Isolde gathers her armies to confront the Picti and faces a violent conflict as well with King Mark, who vows he will not let a prize like Isolde, and Ireland, slip from his grasp. Isolde is last in a line of famous warrior queens who have guarded Ireland from time before memory, and now she—and her knight, Tristan—must play out their fate and face her enemies in a final battle, a war that could spell ruin for them both.

Henrik Ibsen (20th March, 1828 - 23rd May, 1906) is often referred to as the father of realism and ranked just below Shakespeare as Europe's greatest ever playwright especially as his plays are performed most frequently throughout the world after Shakespeare's. He was Norwegian and although set his plays in Norway, he wrote them in Danish and lived most of his professional life in Italy and Germany. His affect on the theatre is still evident today and shapes the distinction of plays being art as opposed to entertainment since he broke down all previous traditions and explored issues, developed characterisation, revealed uncomfortable truths, challenged assumptions and brokedown facades in ourselves as well as society. These factors are clearly demonstrated in The Lady from the Sea, the lady being Ellida, the daughter of a lighthouse keeper who therefore grew up by the open sea and has a deep love for it. She married Dr Wangel who had two daughters by his former wife, Bolette and Hilda and they had a son who died as a baby. Her husband recognises the strains put on the marriage by the infant death and is concerned for Ellida's mental health but more important to Ellida is the return of her former love who she had promised to wait for. She does decide between the two men and her reasons make for good reading in this symbolic play.

"Inspired by Henrik Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea, which sits within the playwright's trilogy focusing on the theme of female self-realisation, renowned Italian photographer Thomas Zanon-Larcher and British theatre director Jules Wright continue their series of narratives realised in performance, film and photography with actors placed in environments external to the conventional set or stage. This book details within Zanon-Larcher's evocative photography, both the methodology of his and Wright's creative approach and the theatre and sheer presence of the landscape itself. Beautifully shot on 6:12 colour and 5:4 black and white, the panoramic images grapple with the beauty and fragility of the Arctic and reflect the power of such imagery which has imposed itself upon the idea of solitude and reflection since polar explorers first recorded their existential journeys. These photographs themselves indeed do more than tell the story of Ellida, and together with in depth discussions with Wright, sit reproductions of Zanon-Larcher's sketchbooks, in which photographic plans are fascinatingly relayed alongside pasted Polaroids, deepening our understanding of a unique and compelling approach to a theatrical masterwork."--
