When We Dead Awaken

The Coronet Theatre

Available to 2 April 2022

The acclaimed The Norwegian Ibsen Company returns to The Coronet Theatre, after its award-winning The Lady From The Sea, with a new adaptation of When We Dead Awaken, Henrik Ibsen’s enigmatic final play.

It's rare that anyone gets the chance to rediscover a lost love. In the depths of winter, Rubek, once a celebrated sculptor, returns to Norway with his estranged young wife, Maia – only to bump into his great lost love and muse Irene.

Is this their opportunity to return to a world where there's meaning, hope and happiness – to awaken from the dead?

The production is directed by celebrated Norwegian director Kjetil Bang Hansen, in his first production in the UK. It will have a Norwegian/British cast, and be performed in a mixture of Norwegian and English with subtitles.

The production will tour Norway after its UK Premiere.
