Henrik Ibsen translated by Lucinda Coxon

John Gabriel Borkman, once an illustrious entrepreneur, has been brought low by a prison sentence for fraud

Bankrupt and disgraced, he is obsessed by dreams of his comeback

As he paces in his upstairs room, his estranged wife plots the restoration of the family name

When her sister arrives unannounced, she triggers a desperate showdown with the past

Henrik Ibsen's most contemporary play is gripping, penetrating and savagely funny

Starring Simon Russell Beale, Lia Williams and Clare Higgins, this version premiered at the Bridge Theatre, London in 2022


It feels electric~ WhatsonStage

"(The play) has a whipsmart humour and wonderful momentum to it: a depiction of frozen lives finally experiencing one last calamitous thaw before the end of their days"~ Time Out
