544d11740be319_87734309The Drayton Arms Theatre will be hosting the Firstborn Theatre Company’s lifetime première of Ibsen’s tragic homage to his homeland.

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.

Where: The  Drayton Arms, 153 Old Brompton Road, SW5 0LJ

When: Tuesday, 18th November, Saturday 22nd November, Tuesday to Saturday at 8pm, plus addititonal 3pm showing on Saturday.

Ticketing: General Admission – £16, Concessions – £10. Avaiable at http://www.thedraytonarmstheatre.co.uk/theatre/event-list/eventdetail/3858/-/the-vikings-at-helgeland
