LITTLE EYOLF

Genre: Drama
by Henick Ibsen, adapted and diercted by David Greenwood

Following up last season's riveting THE MASTER BUILDER, Fresh Look Theatre returns with another new translation/adaptation of Ibsen, the comparatively little known LITTLE EYOLF. This time the themes are quasi-incestuous feelings, cross-gender play, possessiveness, and self-delusion. A tragic accident ignites an explosion of unexpressed resentment and desire that exposes the weak foundations of the Allmers' marriage. It is a biting portrait of a marriage poisoned by doubt and self-delusion that illuminates Ibsen's reputation as a precursor to Freud -- not to mention Shepard and Albee -- and illustrates why his characters continue to resonate with today's audience. Despite a profoundly sad central event, the play ends in a fairly positive resolution -- for Ibsen, very positive!
