The peaceful lives of the Ekdal family are turned upside down by an idealistic young family friend. Can the truth liberate two families bound together by a web of secrets? Or will it destroy their delicate hold on happiness? One of the giants of modern theatre, Henrik Ibsen created a masterpiece that pairs profound tragedy with surprising comedy.
Court Theatre continues its 2008-09 season with Richard Nelson's world premiere translation of Henrik Ibsen's modernist classic, directed by Artistic Director Charles Newell.
