WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Irish Repertory Theater opens its 21st season with the world premiere of Frank McGuinness' adaption of The Master Builder, by Henrik Ibsen. Ciaran O'Reilly directs. Halvard Solness, a successful architect and builder in a small Norwegian town has mercilessly dominated his employees and his wife, Aline. Hilde Wangel, a vivacious young woman arrives unannounced. Hilde has idolized Solness for ten years, since in the early stages of his career, he built a large church in her hometown and heroically climbed to the top of the tower to celebrate its dedication. The architect's presence had a profound effect on the young girl of twelve when he promised to return and, "build her a kingdom." Today, the ten years are up and Hilde has come to reap what he has sown.
