The Lady from the Sea

By Henrik Ibsen

Directed by Brenna Geffers

 

Brenna Geffers transformed Christ Church into a dreamlike space where memory and fantasy manifested themselves before our eyes. The daughter of a lighthouse keeper is happily married. But when her longing for the seas returns in the form of a past lover, her happy family gets caught up in the tides of change.


The only Ibsen play with a clearly happy ending, Lady examines the institution of marriage and the possibility for self-realization within it; determining that in a condition of absolute honesty and respect for each other's free well, a truly happy marriage is possible. Most importantly, Lady states that sharing our lives with others is an ultimately positive act, a much needed message in our fragmented modern world.

REVIEWS

 

"Lady is generally thought to be a heavy drama, but at EgoPo, director Geffers lifts the lid off." - Philadelphia City Paper


"...EgoPo's The Lady from the Sea is an effective and absorbing take on a neglected lesser classic."
- Talkin' Broadway

 


"Director Brenna Geffers has a firm grasp of Ibsen’s mental gymnastics and wisely gives them room to breathe in this raw, bare production." - Phindie
