THE LADY FROM THE SEA

BY HENRIK IBSEN
IN A NEW TRANSLATION BY RICHARD NELSON
DIRECTED BY SHANA COOPER

When a sailor returns to fulfill their promise, a lighthouse keeper’s daughter must choose between her landlocked marriage and the mesmerizing allure of the sea. Hailed as a watershed moment in Ibsen’s writing, The Lady from the Sea dissects issues of duty, marriage, and agency with raw emotion and disarming resonance.
