PERSONA is about two women: a nurse and her famous-actor patient, Elisabet, whose identities merge in a remote seaside cottage.
Based on the film by Ingmar Bergman, translated by Keith Bradfield.
“Breathtaking… stunning… Fraught Outfit have achieved great, almost unfathomable success with Persona. A remarkable production.”
“Subtle, detailed and truthful, this collaboration transfers the mystery at the heart of Bergman’s film intact, while entirely remaking it. AsI said, miraculous.”
“The film is considered one of last century’s greatest works of art and Fraught Outfit’s production doesn’t fall too far behind such an accolade in this new century. This is compelling and compulsory theatre.”
“Persona is an act of majestic ambition, an affirmation of what great theatre can do.”
