Land locked. Sea free. Beyond the walls of her fjord home, where her husband Dr. Wangel offers the security of family and responsibility, Ellida is constantly drawn towards the sea. It's from this element that her past love returns - promising the ecstasy of the unknown. Will she suffocate on dry land, or be washed out to sea? Trevor Nunn directs Pam Gems' new version of Henrik Ibsen's The Lady from the Sea, starring Natasha Richardson.
