About this show

Ibsen's final masterpiece, When We Dead Awaken, asks the questions that every artist must fear to face. What is the nature and value of art? What sacrifices--and more important, whose sacrifices--may be forgiven the artist? Is it possible for an artist to be a responsible citizen, a fully engaged human, or does the necessity to stand outside the subject isolate him? But Ibsen goes further: he extends this ruthless inquiry into the nature of sexual attraction. Is it constructive or destructive? Is it Strindberg's dance of death or Shaw's life force? Is it everything, or is it nothing at all? The opening night performance on Sunday, April 4 starts at 7pm.
