As their relationship deepens, they become more and more isolated leading them to decide that their spiritual union can only be consummated in a mutual suicide pact…

Author

Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is the author of A Doll’s House, Ghosts, Hedda Gabler, Brand and Peer Gynt among many others. Along with Chekhov his plays are revived more often than any other 19th-century writer.

Mike Poulton has a string of successful translations and adaptations to his name, most notably Turgenev’s Fortune’s Fool (which won a Tony in New York) Schiller’s Don Carlos—both of which starred Derek Jacobi—and The Canterbury Tales.
