Through talent and hard work, expert builder Halvard Solness has achieved no small measure of fame and fortune. But the unexpected return of Hilde Wangel to his life threatens to shake the foundations of his success.

A decade prior, Halvard promised a 13-year-old Hilde the world. Now, she’s here to collect. And while Hilde’s return stokes Halvard’s artistic ambitions, his burning passion and her deepest desires may consume everyone around them. Master dramatist Henrik Ibsen’s classic interrogates the costs of creativity, the perils of ambition, the complexities of gender power play and the madness of desire. The Master Builder has only gained potency since its debut in 1892 and stands as one of Ibsen’s most confronting and profound works.

"It weaves together the realistic, the mythical and the symbolism of the subconscious mind." - The Independent

"Haunting tale of ambition and desire." - Evening Standard
