Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman’s masterpiece Fanny & Alexander is translated to the stage by BAFTA award-winning writer Stephen Beresford and Old Vic Associate Director Max Webster.

Amongst the gilded romance and glamour of 1900s Sweden, siblings Fanny and Alexander’s world is turned upside down when their widowed mother remarries the iron-willed local bishop. As creative freedom and rigid orthodoxy clash, a war ensues between imagination and austerity in this magical study of childhood, family and love.

Mr S HUSSAIN23rd April

Fantastic paly and wonderful cast.

Eimear12th April

Good acting, though show was too long making the whole experience a bit lack-lustre

Dr K Illes10th April

Claes-Goran Osterberg27th March

Ruth Rosenthal25th March

Great theatre. Superb acting really good sets. Loved it

Elizabeth Hutchins18th March

Excellent acting. Funny. I didn't realise it was all meant to be from the standpoint of Alexander until I read the reviews.

David Nightingale18th March

Excellent ensemble cast. The play moves quickly as it is divided into three parts with two intermissions in between.

Kathryn Brudenell-Bruce16th March

An amazing production and an impressive adaptation of the film. Well cast and one of the most enjoyable-plays I’ve seen in quite a while. I would highly recommend seeing this play

Karen L Thorne5th March

I’ve been going to the West End for over twenty years. This was way too long, way too many themes, dated and way over done. If I could have left after the first intermission I would have, but my guest wanted to stay. I wanted to kill myself by the second intermission. I’ve always said I would see amazing actors in a bad play because all theatre in London is amazing. I stand corrected.
