Scenes From a Marriage

Date: 8 Sep 2018

At first, Marianne (Stine Stengade) and Johan (Morten Kirkskov) seem to be living a happy life …

But as years of companionship give way to scandal and suffering, the two find their world has turned upside down.

Originally a groundbreaking Swedish television miniseries by filmmaker Ingmar Bergman, this contemporary stage adaptation from the Royal Danish Theatre places a timely twist on tale shrouded in controversy when it initially aired in 1973.

In this riveting take on the original story, the gender roles are reversed as Marianne and Johan re-live moments of a once perfect marriage.

From scene to scene, frustrations fester as they spiral further into a world of deceit, conflict and rage.

Will Marianne and Johan continue to live as two people drawn to mutual misery, or will they search for love and meaning elsewhere?
