An Actors Equity Association Members' Project Code Presentation a Seattle Premiere of THE LEAGUE OF YOUTH, Ibsen's (A Doll's House, Hedda Gabbler, Peer Gynt) only comedy! Zandi plays the vivid and lovely, Thora Brattsberg.
In an adaptation full of sparkling wit and cynical humor, this political comedy follows the meteoric rise of ambitious young Stensgaard, an office-seeker who’s willing to say anything to win an election. Forming the “League of Youth” to lobby against his opposition, Stensgaard schemes, romances, and manipulates in his rush to power. Ibsen’s most popular play in his lifetime, THE LEAGUE OF YOUTH caused fighting in the streets, with conservatives claiming it was an attack on their party and liberals claiming it was an attack on theirs! A thought-provoking comedy that’s sure to feel shockingly familiar.
