Adapted for stage by David Eldridge from the hit Dogme film, Festen is a powerful and disturbing exploration of middle class respectability. It is Helge's 60th birthday and the party is one that the family will never forget. The cracks left by the suicide of his daughter, are exploded apart when her twin brother raises the first toast to their father.
This searing study of a son's response to a father's actions makes Festen an ideal companion piece to Hamlet.
