Ibsen’s Olaf returns to the UK after 100 years

at Baron's Court Theatre

One of Henrik Ibsen’s first realist dramas in prose, Olaf Liljekrans, was last presented in the UK at London’s Adelphi Theatre in 1911. This June, Ottisdotter brings the play back to London.


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. A dark tale of great humour, showing uncorrupted nature set against a corrupt human society, Ibsen’s Olaf can be seen as an early development of his later Master Builder.
