About this show

Atlantic welcomes the Pulitzer Prize and Tony-winning author of I Am My Own Wife and Quills for the world premiere of his latest work, commissioned by the company.

Norway's most celebrated sculptor is commissioned to create the last official portrait of the country's most famous writer, but Henrik Ibsen proves to be an irascible, contentious sitter, as the two men wage war over both his legacy and his likeness. With his inimitable wit and insight, Doug Wright explores the nature of artistic success and the fear of being forgotten.
