This Monday, Feb. 2, Andrea Ragusa will moderate the monthly play reading session at the Senior Center. Play reading takes place on the first Monday of the month at the Senior Center from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. This month, the group will read The Lady from the Sea by Henrik Ibsen. Marriage and freedom is the subject of this symbolic play. Ellida is the daughter of a lighthouse keeper and she grew up on the open sea. She is married to Dr. Wangel and they live in the mountains in a small town in West Norway. The doctor has two daughters by his previous wife who is deceased. Ellida and the doctor had a son, who died as a baby. This has put a big strain on their marriage. Dr. Wangel is concerned about Ellida's mental health and invites Arnholm, his daughters' former tutor to help her. Arnholm thinks that Bolette one of the daughters is waiting for him and he proposes. Bolette agrees to marry him because she sees this as her only way to get out into the world. Some years earlier, Ellida was engaged to a sailor but, due to circumstances, could not marry him. He asked her to wait for him. Now all these years later the sailor returns to claim her. Ellida must choose between the sailor and her husband.
