Elling is based on the popular original Norwegian novels by Ingvar Ambjornsen and adapted for the Oscar-nominated film and the stage by Axel Hellstenius and Petter Naess, in a new English adaptation by Simon Bent. Set in the current day, Elling is a comedy about a wildly mismatched pair of roommates trying to embrace life, love, friendship, pizza, poetry, and women.
Denis O'Hare plays obsessive/compulsive Elling. Brendan Fraser, plays the wildly enthusiastic gentle giant Kjell. Jennifer Coolidge plays Reidun, the object of Kjell's considerable affection, and Richard Easton plays Alfons, Elling's unlikely poet mentor.
