Through A Glass Darkly is a vibrant, moving adaptation of the Oscar-winning film by legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. Set on a dark, stony island this intimate, tightly condensed family drama depicts the unraveling of Karin – a young wife, older sister and an only daughter. Torn by the duty she feels for the men who love her and the inner voices that compel her towards freedom, Karin is faced with a choice that will alter her fate and that of her family.


Beth Cooke, Peter Gowen, Peter Gaynor and Colin Campbell
