Last presented at London's Adelphi Theatre in June 1911, Henrik Ibsen's Olaf is being performed for the first time in the United Kingdom in over 100 years.

Overview

Henrik Ibsen's Olaf Liljekrans is one of his first realist dramas in prose. Set one summer in a remote mountain district of Norway, two warring families come together to celebrate a matrimonial union of both of the Houses. However, all is not well when the groom, himself, disappears.

Ottisdotter return to Barons Court Theatre with this dark tale of great humour, showing uncorrupted nature set against a corrupt human society. Ibsen's Olaf can be seen as an important precursor to his later Master Builder.

Critic reviews

Good to see an early Ibsen being staged

Everything Theatre

What holds this production together is Ibsen’s poetic language that is ripe with intense desire and passion; however at times I was struggling to believe what the characters were saying
