FANNY AND ALEXANDER takes to the stage in London

The Ingmar Bergman film Fanny and Alexander is being adapted to the stage in London as part of the #Bergman100 celebrations.

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.

The stage play is being adapted by BAFTA award-winning writer Stephen Beresford and Old Vic Associate Director Max Webster.

Fanny and Alexander runs at the Old Vic in London from the 21st of February until the 14th of April 2018.
