We have teamed up with The Old Vic theatre to give Curzon Members the chance to win tickets for a new stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's film masterpiece Fanny & Alexander, starring Penelope Wilton as Helen Ekdahl.

The Ekdahls are a family of the theatre. Their lives are as messy and passionate as the characters they play onstage. Children Fanny and Alexander have grown up in this loving chaos surrounded by laughter. But when their widowed mother remarries the brutally cold local bishop, their world is turned upside down. In a battle of wills between freedom and repression, a story unfolds about the power of imagination and the endurance of a family’s love for each other.

Legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman’s rich, funny and humane masterpiece Fanny & Alexander is adapted for the stage by BAFTA award-winning writer Stephen Beresford and Old Vic Associate Director Max Webster.

Fanny & Alexander plays at the Old Vic until 14 April.

…by the end of it, you will have seen every possible kind of adventure. The dead will speak and the living will fight and there will be swords, and horses, and magical speaking puppets. And a ghost. And a dog. And a naked lady. But first…
— Fanny & Alexander

Bertil Guve played Alexander Ekdahl in Ingmar Bergman's seminal film Fanny & Alexander, last screened at Curzon Soho in December 2017 as part of our ongoing series celebrating cult films on celluloid, Enthusiasms.
