(PLAINFIELD, NJ) -- Catalyst Theater Company is presenting Elling, a life affirming comedy,  across two weekends (November 3-5 and November 10-12, 2023) at duCret Center of Art in Plainfield. Elling is a 2007 theatrical adaption of the novel and film of the same name. Simon Bent adapted Ingvar Bjornsen's novel and the show was produced on both the West End and Broadway to critical acclaim. Photographer John Posada was on hand to take photos.

Set in Oslow, Norway, this piece is about a sensitive, mentally unstable man who must move to a psychiatric institution when his mother, who has cared for him for 40 plus years, passes away. There he meets Kjell and the pair become fast friends and roommates. After two years they are released from the institution into a government apartment in Oslo to make their way back into society.

At first even the simplest tasks of independent life prove challenging. Soon the roommates begin to blossom in their own unique ways while discovering new friends along the way. It is a comedic story of surviving trauma and dealing with the anxieties and complexities of what it means to be a functioning adult in society. It is a story of struggle, perseverance, family of choice and love.
