FESTEN
Written by Thomas Vinterberg, Mogens Rukov & Bo Hr.Hansen 
In an adaption by David Eldridge Directed by David Blakey
Presented by arrangement with Nordiska ApS, Copenhagen for Ellerslie Theatrical Society Inc. 

‘Festen is an embodiment of what theatre should be' – Paul Taylor, The Independent
'Electrifying, shocking and profoundly moving... a thrilling modern tragedy'
 – Sunday Times (London)

Based on the award-winning Danish film ‘The Celebration’. Festen sees family and close friends gather to celebrate Helge's 60th birthday. Rocked by the recent death of his twin sister Linda, Christian, the eldest son, raises the first toast. His shocking exposure of a dark family secret deals a staggering blow to their veneer of respectability, tolerance and discretion. Like a Greek tragedy, no character is left unaffected; no reaction predictable. Dark, explosive and powerful, this award winning play promises to shock and enthrall.
