Ruth Wilson Reading Through a Glass Darkly

Next week Ruth Wilson will be taking part in a reading, script in hand, of a stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s film Through A Glass Darkly.

Through a Glass Darkly describes 24 hours in the life of a family vacationing on the island of Fårö, off Sweden's south east coast. Karin [played by Ruth] has been brought to the remote island by her family in order to facilitate her recuperation from a psychotic episode. However, the family’s already fragile ties are tested; with Karin’s father, husband and younger brother so consumed by their own frailties that they cannot prevent her relapse.

The reading will be on May 28 at 6.00 pm & May 29 at 8.00 pm at the Ingmar Bergman International Theater Festival.
