Elling is a charming play about two social misfits who learn to deal with the outside world together. Bill Largess' repressed Elling and Kjell Bjarne's childlike effusiveness created by James Konicek are so heartfelt that the viewer cannot resist rooting for them. Both comic and poignant, this is a wonderful play about coping with life.
