Ellida, the lighthouse-keeper’s daughter, is trapped in her marriage and longs for the sea. When a former lover returns from years of absence, she is forced to decide between freedom and the new life she has made for herself. Ibsen’s emotional drama explores the themes of duty and self-determination.

Our The Lady from the Sea Review

Kwame Kwei-Armah was recently announced to succeed David Lan as artistic director of the Young Vic, and proved to be an immediately popular choice. The London-born former actor (he was a star of TV's Casualty and Holby City) turned award-winning playwright and theatre director is breaking a glass ceiling as he becomes the first British African-Caribbean director to run a major UK theatre.
