A collection of three of Ibsen's best-known, most-performed social 'problem' plays, all featuring female protagonists. Translated by Kenneth McLeish and Stephen Mulrine, with an extensive introduction, biographical notes and suggestions for further reading. Contains:

A Doll's House: Ibsen's proto-feminist classic about a woman's rejection of her husband's authority and awakening to her need for a life of her own.

Ghosts: When her son, Oswald, returns home from Paris, Mrs Alving feels the ghosts of the past returning to haunt them.

Hedda Gabler: Restless and discontented in her marriage, Hedda Gabler is drawn to a former admirer, Lovborg, now a brilliant writer. But he is more taken with Hedda's old schoolfriend. Driven by jealousy, Hedda destroys Lovborg and his precious manuscript and finally, herself.

The plays are also available individually.

Cast : A Doll's House - 4F, 4M (3 children) / Ghosts - 3M, 2F / Hedda Gabler - 2M, 3F
