About Olaf

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.
