Drawing on 30 years of marriage to five spouses, Ingmar Bergman acknowledged a strong connection to the lead characters of his masterful 1973 film. Johan and Marianne seem the perfect couple. Yet the illusion is soon shattered during this blisteringly perceptive study of a relationship breaking down.

Illuminating Bergman’s world, Ivo van Hove’s theatrical adaptation invites audiences to intimate onstage spaces in which three sets of actors portray Johan and Marianne at different ages. Simultaneous performances converge, bringing their universal battle for love, identity and understanding to a surprising conclusion.

Van Hove’s inventive transfers of cinematic works to the stage, including Antonioni Project, have immersed European audiences.

'Toneelgroep are well known for giving classic texts vigorous modern makeovers and it’s certainly the case here. An audacious re-imagining of Bergman’ 
Time Out ««««

'As good as theatre gets; combining astonishingly inventive stagecraft with glorious acting’ Guardian on Roman Tragedies at the Barbican (2009)
