Master Builder, The

Henrik Ibsen (Adapted by David Edgar)
 
An enthralling new version of an unforgettable Ibsen classic.

Part psychological thriller, part Gothic tragedy, Ibsen’s late masterwork is a compelling portrait of one man's obsessive determination, and what might lie on the darker side of ambition.

Halvard Solness, the leading architect of his age, is at the end of his career. A single-minded man of angry pride, trapped in a frozen marriage to Aline, he is terrified of being eclipsed by the younger generation snapping at his heels.

A decade after their first meeting, the charismatic and bewitching young Hilde Wangel comes back into his life and inspires him to even greater heights. But will his last towering achievement renew him or destroy him?

Peer Gynt

Henrik Ibsen (Adapted by David Edgar)
 
Peer Gynt is a dreamer, a liar and a serial womaniser. Cast out from his hometown, Peer embarks on a wild and astonishing journey in search of fame and fortune that takes him from Norway to Africa and eventually back home again. An exhilarating tale of a life lived on the edge.

This radical new co-production promises a mix of trolls, madmen, dancing girls and live music. Under the direction of Dominic Hill in a colourful new version from the writer of the Rep’s recent hit show Monkey, Peer Gynt finally brings together two of Scotland’s most acclaimed theatre companies.

Be prepared for a theatrical roller-coaster ride through one of the greatest works of modern literature.
