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?

A taut new version by David Edgar, smartly underscored in ways that heighten the supernatural mood  -  Telegraph
