About Persona

Renowned stage actress, Elizabet, has suffered a psychological breakdown and relapsed into silence. She is sent with Sister Alma, the nurse assigned to her recovery, to a remote summer beach house. Can Alma coax Elizabet out of her silence? Truth, lies, manipulation and identity, PERSONA explores the meaning of ‘reality’. Paul Schoolman brings his unique vision to create a new theatrical adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's iconic film, adding the character of The Narrator and using Bergman’s unseen notes and words for a fresh take on this enigmatic masterpiece. Sister Alma is played by Olivier winner Alice Krige and actor, singer/songwriter Nobuhle Ketelo plays Elizabet. William Close joins as the fourth voice in the quartet playing his signature Earth Harp. The Harp's resonating chamber will rest on the stage & the strings go out over the audience to the grid above, creating an extraordinary multi- dimensional experience.
