Soup Troupe & The Really Small Theatre Company are proud to present the first ever performance of the English version of Minna Canth’s Sylvi.

Written in 1893, Sylvi reflects the mores and preoccupations of the time – although it was ahead of its time. It is a tale of marital disharmony, passion and betrayal lurking behind a façade of respectability, and Sylvi pays the price.

The production is a tribute to Minna Canth, to her writing and her progressive feminist views. We are presenting Sylvi as a period piece in language and style, with specially arranged musical accompaniment. Don’t miss it!

This production will be performed in English.
