LITTLE EYOLF

A boy goes missing and we have 90 minutes to find him.

LITTLE EYOLF played in November 2018. We messed around with Ibsen’s text to make a play about facts, feelings, big data, Cambridge Analytica, and what this all might mean for character.

LITTLE EYOLF sold out at the Oxford Playhouse BT Studio and we revived an extract at the Old Fire Station in May 2019.

Ensemble: <strong>Abby McCann, Alasdair Linn, </strong><strong>Ben Millard, Hannah Patient</strong>
Written and directed by <strong>Amitai Landau-Pope</strong>
Produced by <strong>Mrinmoyee Roy</strong>
Assistant directed and photographed by <strong>Cesca Echlin</strong>

LITTLE EYOLF is unpredictable, ambitious and at times ridiculous. If we are to keep reviving classical texts, this is how they should be resurrected: for our times, for real audiences and, ideally, in a tight 90 minute slot at the Burton Taylor Studio.” Oxford Opening Night.

LITTLE EYOLF has many extraordinary virtues. It is a production that is not afraid to take an old text and play with it, disrupting structures and meanings in a joyful, sharp experimentalism. It has the mark of a strong director, who is fearless in making bold choices on the stage.” Zad El Bacha, Cherwell.
“I was not familiar with Ibsen’s Little Eyolf before last night’s production and I have to admit that after a thoroughly enjoyable, thought provoking evening I fear I am not a lot the wiser.” Helen Smith, Daily Info.
