Oberlin College Theater Presents
by Henrik Ibsen
translated by Rolf Fjelde
directed by Matthew Wright
April 17, 18 & 19, 2014 | 8pm
In one of the great masterpieces of western drama, Ibsen lays bare the soul of a woman struggling to free herself from the stifling oppression of regret, dead beliefs, and the consequences of choices made in youth. Helene Alving’s artist son has returned home, frail and heartsick from his bohemian life, just as a monument to her late, admired husband is to be dedicated in their town. This jubilant occasion opens old wounds, and specters of past mistakes collide with present horrors, as Mrs. Alving fights for true understanding and the courage to act with her heart.
