Donmar Warehouse today announced full casting for Elinor Cook’s new version of Ibsen’s masterpiece The Lady from the Sea. As previously announced Nikki Amuka-Bird will play Ellida, and she is joined by Ellie Bamber, Jake Fairbrother, Jim Findley, Jonny Holden, Finbar Lynch, Tom McKay and HeLena Wilson.

Ellie said taking the part was “not the easy choice” but felt like “the right thing to do”.

“I feel like theatre is where I learn and I can learn from Kwame and Nikki and the rest of the cast. The last few months have been a bit crazy — there were two weeks when I think I had been in eight different countries and that is a little bit weird. I remember saying to my brother, ‘I don’t think I’m ever coming home’. But Chanel are a great house to work with and I go to these amazing places … they are also really understanding about when I need to be at home for work.”

Following his production of the Olivier Award-nominated One Night in Miami…. Donmar Associate Director Kwame Kwei-Armah returns to direct Ibsen’s moving play about duty and self-determination.

Ellida, the lighthouse-keeper’s daughter, is trapped in her marriage and longs for the sea. When a former lover returns from years of absence, she is forced to decide between freedom and the new life she has made for herself.

Lady By The Sea runs from 12 October 2017 until 2 December 2017 at Donmar Warehouse.
