There is something about an Ibsen play that makes it interesting to watch, even though the characters all seem so desperately unhappy. They have inner lives that torment them and cause pain to the ones they love. But somehow Ibsen makes you want to watch, to know what will happen. And in this play, at least no one dies!
A brilliant performance by Moya O’Connell as Elida Wangel was was matched by a cooler, more constrained performance by Ric Reid, an actor I always like and never remember.
