Edith and Oscar Tellmann have been together since before they can remember. When their family life took a turn, the couple found solace in travel and adventure. But now they’re well into their 80s, stuck in a drab flat, surrounded by cats, books, memories, and leaking pipes. As they journey into old age, the couple invent a new way to travel together… The Journey to Venice is a celebration of ageing, fantasy, love, and the sacrifices we make in order to keep on living. The Journey to Venice is a modern Norwegian classic, winning the Norwegian Ibsen Prize in 1992 and televised in 1993. Recently revived in Norway, it has been staged in Germany, the Czech Republic and Denmark, and now receives its long-overdue UK premiere at the multi-award-winning Finborough Theatre.
