The Feast at Solhaug at the Baron's Court Theatre
Ottisdotter Productions will present the last of Henrik Ibsen's plays to receive its world première in English, The Feast at Solhaug at the Barons Court Theatre in west London from 8 to 25 April 2015.
The play was disowned and then reclaimed by Ibsen in 1870 and 1883 respectively, and is one of his early lyric works exploring the themes of desire, freedom and marriage over the course of one night. It follows Margit, Lady of Solhaug, who is awaiting her anniversary feast when an unexpected visitor brings forth memories of her lost youth. Suffocating in the gilded Solhaug, Margit plots a dramatic, desperate escape from the prison of her life.
The Feast at Solhaug will be directed by Mark Ewbank and Holly Prescott and features designs by Rosalind Murdoch and costume by Eleanor Watson. It will feature a cast which includes Lucy Pickles, Kelsey Williams, Will Timbers, Che Watson, Peter Wheal-Jones and Joe Lewis.
