This stage version of the classic Danish film is about an explosive family celebration. Patriarch Helge Klingenfelt is celebrating his 60th birthday with his family at a magnificent old hotel in the Danish countryside. Gathered together are his loyal wife Elsa, his daughter Helene, and sons Christian and Michael. As the evening progresses Christian feels compelled to break the silence surrounding a dark family secret. The effect is explosive and sets the tone for a celebration no one will forget. This dramatization by David Eldridge is based on the Dogme film and play by Thomas Vinterberg, which deals with similar themes of repercussions of child abuse and a family’s collusion in denial that finally implodes.
