How is a life well-lived?
Alfred Allmers comes home to his wife, Rita, and makes a decision. Casting aside his writing, he dedicates himself to raising his son. But one event is about to change his life forever. Ibsen's Little Eyolf is an forensic examination of a marriage as it explosively falls apart.
The third in a trilogy of revelatory Ibsens, Little Eyolf follows Richard Eyre's multi-award winning Ghosts (Almeida, West End and BAM, New York), and Hedda Gabler (Almeida, West End).
