A Master Builder

By Henrik Ibsen Adapted by Wallace Shawn

Paperback £14.99

This translation and adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Master Builder Solness by Wallace Shawn, a writer known for his own bleakly hilarious and provocative plays, was used by legendary director André Gregory during fifteen years of work on a theatrical production which, instead of being produced as a play, was made into a film by Jonathan Demme in 2014 — a film that is an utterly contemporary vision of Ibsen's classic play.

Press Quotes

'At once the U.S.'s most profound and overlooked playwright.'

David Hare

'Wallace Shawn is one of the most complex and uncompromising moralists of the American theater.'
