Nina Morrison’s, Aurora Fra Bergen, or, Ibsanity, is an adaption of Ibsen’s The Lady from the Sea. It is a comic tempest that erupts when the madness of love breaks all conventional boundaries. So many of Ibsen’s plays exposed and broke open the crushing conventions of his society. Morrison is faithful to Ibsen’s impulse as she breaks open the convention of the heteronormative. This is a love triangle of women. Sonja and Ilann are married, but Ilaan can’t break away from her fixation on the mysterious women Karine who captured her heart years ago. Now Karine, the “Stranger” from the Sea has returned. Will Ilann choose her passionate lover or her caring wife? Is desire destiny?
