About Festen

Marla Rubin and Bill Kenwright present the Almeida Theatre Production of Festen.

Rufus Norris directs David Eldridge's English Language stage adaptation of Festen (The Celebration), a new adaptation of the original Dogme film and play.

Patriarch Helge Klingenfelt is celebrating his 60th birthday with his family at a magnificent old house 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!

Starring Jane Asher (Else), Sam Beazley (Grandfather), Sam Cox (Poul), Andrew Frame (Kim), Rory Kinnear (Michael), Luke Mably (Christian), Andrew Maud (Lars), Ruth Millar (Pia), Stephen Moore (Helge), Lisa Palfrey (Mette), Patrick Robinson (Gbatokai), Claire Rushbrook (Helene) Michael Thomas (Helmut)
