A sparkling translation of Ibsen's penultimate play.

On the family estate outside Oslo at the turn of the 19th century, a man paces the floor in an upstairs room. This is John Gabriel Borkman, once a famous entrepreneur, now reduced to penury and self-doubt following a prison sentence for embezzlement. His wife, her twin sister and his son are all trapped in the claustrophobic atmosphere which has descended upon the household – and which can only lead to an explosion as the suffocation becomes unbearable.

Stephen Mulrine's English version of Henrik Ibsen's John Gabriel Borkman was first staged by English Touring Theatre in 2003.
