Theatre, 1951

The Country Girl

Public sensations Georg Rydeberg and Karin Kavli played the leading roles in the European premiere of Clifford Odets' drama.

About the production

The play deals with an alcoholic actor who is given a second chance. Bergman's direction was considered skilled, clean and controlled, yet not very original.
