ABOUT Ingmar Bergman'S AUTUMN SONATA
Director RoBert Woodruff, whose Yale Rep productions include Notes from Underground (2009) and Battle of Black and Dogs (2010), returns with the U.S. premiere stage adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's Autumn Sonata.
Charlotte (CAndy Buckley), a celebrated classical pianist who has forged a successful career at the expense of her family, attempts to reconcile with her daughter Eva (Rebecca Henderson), whom she has not seen in seven years. Over the course of one evening, they confront their darkest feelings and resentments. A tightly-wound psychological study of the complicated relationship between mothers and daughters, Autumn Sonata reveals that living and loving-like mastering notes on a piano-are skills that must be practiced every day.
Widely considered one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, Ingmar Bergman wrote and directed such landmark films as The Seventh Seal, Wild Strawberries, and Scenes from a Marriage.
