Written in 1888, "The Lady from the Sea" is Henrik Ibsen's drama about a married couple, Ellida and Doctor Wangel. Doctor Wangel, a widower with two daughters, begins to notice Ellida, a much younger woman, becoming increasingly anxious and strange in her demeanor. Fearing a problem with her mental health he asks his former headmaster, Arnholm, to come for a visit in hopes that he may be able to help. It is soon discovered that Ellida was once engaged to a sailor and that he has returned. Henrik Ibsen's "The Lady from the Sea" is a classic tale of the conflicting demands that love can place on ones heart.

There are parts that I found stilted, but overall, I loved the pace and simplicity. Even though the theme of free will and the ability to make a choice is a common one, I liked the way this play dealt with it. Read full review
