Commonweal Theatre Company announces 16th Annual Ibsen Festival

Posted in Lanesboro Arts & Culture

Lanesboro, Mn - The Commonweal Theatre Company announces its 16th Annual Ibsen Festival is April 12-14 in downtown Lanesboro. Named for the acclaimed “Father of Modern Drama,” the Festival, a celebration of Scandinavian theatre, visual art, music and dance, is centered around the opening of Commonweal’s annual Ibsen production. This yearly gathering of artists and craftsmen was honored in 2008 by the Norwegian Government, who awarded the Commonweal Theatre one of only four inaugural International Ibsen Scholarships in recognition of its ongoing commitment to producing the works of one of the world’s premiere playwrights.

The highlight of the Festival is the opening of Commonweal Theatre’s annual Ibsen production with a preview performance Friday, April 12th and grand opening performance Saturday, April 13th at 7:30 pm with an Opening Night Reception to follow. This year, the theatre will present A Doll’s House which centers on a young wife who is forced to make a shocking decision when a prior misdeed threatens to destroy her perfect household. The weekend will also feature an encore performance of the 2013 Commonweal Apprentice Company production of Miss Julie by August Strindberg in a new adaptation by Apprentice Ethan Bjelland on Sunday, April 14 at 11am.

A Doll’s House is directed by Executive Director Hal Cropp, and features resident ensemble member Stef Dickens as Nora Helmer, a woman desperate to keep her ideal home intact in the face of a secret that could unravel it. The cast also includes Commonweal resident ensemble members David Hennessey, Megan K. Pence, Daniel L. Stock, Jeremy van Meter and annual company member Carla Joseph.

The script for A Doll’s House has been adapted by renowned Minnesota playwright Jeffrey Hatcher, whose credits include Compleat Female Stage Beauty, Scotland Road and Three Viewings, and adaptations of Jean Anouilh’s To Fool the Eye and Henry James’ Turn of the Screw, also produced by the Commonweal Theatre in 2006 and 2010 respectively. This is the fourth Ibsen adaptation created for the Commonweal by Mr. Hatcher as part of a series of new versions of Ibsen’s plays developed for the American stage, beginning in 2010 with John Gabriel Borkman, An Enemy of the People in 2011, last season’s Pillars of Society and slated to continue in 2014 with Brand.

The Ibsen Festival offers events and presentations throughout the weekend to satisfy a variet .....
