A portrait of idealism and democracy floundering in a society of conservatism and opportunism, considered by many to be Ibsen's dramatic masterpiece.

Johannes Rosmer has resigned as parish priest following the suicide of his wife. But his increasingly liberal ideas make him an object of suspicion to the local worthies, who also disapprove of the presence in his house of a much younger woman, Rebecca West, formerly his wife's companion. As their relationship deepens and their isolation builds, the increasing moral pressures they face force them inexorably towards their fate...

This version of Ibsen's Rosmersholm by Mike Poulton was first staged at the Almeida Theatre, London, in 2008.

Press Quotes

'A masterpiece of psychological drama in an unpoetic but accessible, modern version by Mike Poulton that never succumbs to the temptations of melodrama... none of the solemn mustiness still afflicting Ibsen revivals'

London Evening Standard

'Fascinating and complex'
