Elling

Bush Theatre
by Simon Bent
Genre(s): New Writing

About: Elling

Whatís the point of ever going out when you can get pizza delivered, and all the sex you want on the phone? And who needs a bed to sleep in when thereís a perfectly good wardrobe to stand the night in?

First there was Walter Matthau and Jack Lemmon; now meet Elling and Kjell Bjarne, the Odd Couple of the dysfunctional world. Given a flat in the centre of Oslo by social services, their mission is to re-assimilate themselves back into society. Itís that or return to the asylum. All they have to do now is convince their social worker, Frank, that they really are ĎnormalíÖ

Based on the award-winning cult film, Simon Bentís hilarious adaptation of Elling marks the fourth writer-director collaboration between Simon Bent and Paul Miller for The Bush Theatre, following Bad Company, Goldhawk Road and Sugar Sugar. Paul Miller also directed the acclaimed Kingfisher Blue at The Bush in 2005. John Simmís recent television roles include Life on Mars, State of Play and Sex Traffic. He last appeared at The Bush in Simon Bentís Goldhawk Road.
