Theatre Works, Heartstring and Burning House present

Little Eyolf

By Henrik Ibsen

2 - 10 December

LITTLE EYOLF is one of Ibsen's very best plays. Rarely performed due to its difficult subject matter, it is an intensely moving portrayal of a husband and wife picking up the pieces of their life after their only child dies. To watch it is a horrifying, cathartic experience, leaving one feeling cleansed at the end, and determined to live life with fierce responsibility.

LITTLE EYOLF is a searingly modern play about sex, marriage, death, grief, motherhood and responsibility. The team behind Theatre Works and Burning House's electrifying production of CALIGULA join forces with Green Room nominated company Heartstring to present Melbourne with its first professional production of this truly masterful play.
