‘Our home has never been anything other than a play-house. I’ve been your doll-wife here, just as at home I was Daddy’s doll-child’
These four plays established Ibsen as the leading figure in the theatre of his day, sending shockwaves throughout Europe and beyond. A Doll’s House scandalized audiences with its free-thinking heroine Nora. Ibsen’s even more radical follow-up, Ghosts, exposes family secrets and sexual double-dealing, while Pillars of the Community and An Enemy of the People both explore the hypocrisy and the dark tensions at the heart of society. This new translation, the first to be based on the latest critical edition of Ibsen’s works, offers the best version available in English.
