The Questors present
The Master Builderby Henrik Ibsen, translated by Kenneth McLeish
Classic drama of dreams, duty and buried desires
Following a life of outstanding success as a master builder, despite the personal tragedies affecting his family and marriage, Halvard Solness now lives in fear that the younger generation will displace him and make his life meaningless. But the unexpected arrival of a bewitching young woman, to hold him to a forgotten 10-year-old promise, gives him new inspiration.
Ibsen's powerful emotional drama is one of his most personal - perhaps even autobiographical - plays.
As these very real characters, full of human complexity, gradually reveal themselves, the drama teems with tensions - between the free creative spirit and morality, self-knowledge and guilt, youth and age. Is it possible to build castles in the air while your demons are dragging you down?There will be no interval in this production
