John Gabriel Borkman

By Henrik Ibsen Adapted by Nicholas Wright

Paperback £8.99£7.19

Nicholas Wright's sensitive version of Ibsen's late play, about a family brought low by the disgrace and imprisonment of its patriarch.

John Gabriel Borkman, a former 'pillar of the community', has been in voluntary seclusion in an upstairs room since enduring a prison sentence for embezzlement. His wife, her twin sister, his son and even Borkman himself are all trapped in the suffocating atmosphere of this claustrophobic household.

Nicholas Wright's English version of Henrik Ibsen's John Gabriel Borkman was first staged at the National Theatre, London, in 1996.

Press Quotes

'Richard Eyre's production is perfectly complemented by Nicholas Wright's idiomatic but unobtrusive translation'
