Woven from Scandinavian family sagas, and set in 10th century Norway, Helgeland fuses Shakespearean tragedy with domestic drama, wound around the confined, furious passions of Hjordis – Ibsen’s earlier, wilder Hedda Gabler.
This unique play fuses Ibsen’s mastery of psychological detail and social critique with the bravado plot and larger-than-life characterizations you’d expect from an episode of Game of Thrones.
