The Lady From The Sea (1888) marked a turning-point in Ibsen’s writing career as it, and the plays that followed it, concerned itself more with individual destinies than with general moral or social principles. In this new translation, Pam Gems (best known for plays such as Piaf, Stanley, Camille and Dusa, Fish, Stas and Vi) gives this classic drama a refreshing new life.

The Lady from the Sea

It's undoubtedly made her the woman that she is. People in the town don't
understand it at all. They call her 'the lady from the sea'. That's what she's actually
known as. Arnholm Do they say that? Doctor Wangel Yes, they do. Please speak

David Eldridge's new version of Ibsen's classic play, published to coincide with the production at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester. When the lighthouse keeper's daughter Ellida meets the widower Dr Wangel, she tries to put her long-lost first love far behind her and begin a new life as a wife and stepmother. But the tide is turning, an English ship is coming down the fjord, and the undercurrents threaten to drag a whole family beneath the surface in this passionate and sweeping drama. Ellida must choose between the values of the land: solidity and reliability against those of the sea: mystery and fluidity. Ibsen's lyrical masterpiece includes powerful symbolism and supernatural overtones. Similar to Hedda Gabler and A Doll's House, The Lady from the Sea looks at the constrained social position of women, exploring themes of choice, marriage, responsibility and freedom. David Eldridge's translation is sensitive to Ibsen's language, subtle and faithful, and makes this classic play accessible to the English reader without compromising any of the original's intensely poetic and atmospheric tone.

The final thrilling chapter in the Tristan and Isolde trilogy . . . Isolde, heir to the throne of the queens, is now a sovereign in her own right. With the glories of the throne comes the responsibility of a queen, and Isolde knows she must return to her beloved Western Isle. She can no longer tolerate her marriage to King Mark of Cornwall, a marriage she has accepted for years in order to save her country from the threat of war and to be near her only love, Mark’s nephew Tristan of Lyonesse. King Mark, always cowardly and spiteful, is too heavily influenced by his monks and counselors, who loathe the powerful and independent Isolde. And so she leaves Cornwall for good and comes home to Ireland, where her lords face a growing threat from the warlike Picti, who live in the barren highlands to the north of England. The Picti have a bold new king, Darath, who is determined to take the riches of Ireland for his own people, whether by war or by marriage with Isolde. Isolde gathers her armies to confront the Picti and faces a violent conflict as well with King Mark, who vows he will not let a prize like Isolde, and Ireland, slip from his grasp. Isolde is last in a line of famous warrior queens who have guarded Ireland from time before memory, and now she—and her knight, Tristan—must play out their fate and face her enemies in a final battle, a war that could spell ruin for them both.
