A new play by Samuel Adamson from Henrik Ibsen's Little Eyolf. Directed by Marianne Elliott.
The cast includes Claire Skinner in the title role, with Naomi Frederick and Angus Wright.
Samuel Adamson's new play takes Ibsen's Little Eyolf as the inspiration for a passionate and tragic tale of obsessive love, set in 1950s England.
After six lonely weeks with nobody but her crippled little boy for company, Rita Affleck, wealthy, beautiful and consumed by jealous love, welcomes home her husband Alfred. But, far from the passionate reunion she so craves, there is only torment as Alfred's possessive half-sister arrives, and he announces his great revelation.
