  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
There should be no shame in us taking pleasure in our little lives.'

Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman's masterpiece Fanny & Alexander is translated to the stage by BAFTA award-winning writer Stephen Beresford and Old Vic Associate Director Max Webster.

Amongst the gilded romance and glamour of 1900s Sweden, siblings Fanny and Alexander's world is turned upside down when their widowed mother remarries the iron-willed local bishop. As creative freedom and rigid orthodoxy clash, a war ensues between imagination and austerity in this magical study of childhood, family and love.
