About The Lady From the Sea

Ellida, a lighthouse-keeper’s daughter, is trapped on an island in her marriage and longs for the sea. The conflict in the mermaid-like Ellida Wangel is between her duty to her devoted husband and her attraction to a mysterious, seagoing stranger from her past. Her duty to convention takes second place to an otherworldly awareness of more mystical bonds challenging her wedding vows. Written in 1888, years after A Doll’s House but before Hedda Gabler, The Lady from the Sea continues Ibsen’s exploration of the imbalances of marriage and a woman’s need for freedom. It is haunting and delightfully real in its display of this world and the otherworld, with both containing an intoxicating desire to be set free.
