A controversial classic of modern realism is given new relevance in this US premiere production from London’s acclaimed Young Vic theater. With a fresh, fiery translation by playwright Simon Stephens, Ibsen’s drama of suffocating gender norms and independent ideals is made startlingly contemporary, sure to provoke any classroom into intense discussion about personal responsibility, feminist principles, and the tensions inherent to traditional family structure.
