The Master Builder

Henrik Ibsen author

Jan Frič directed by

“Never promise anything to little girls, because when they grow up they will want you to fulfill your promise.”

A strongly personal play by Henrik Ibsen about the fear of generation change and about the loss of a hard-one position at the height of one´s career. The famous builder Solness enjoys a unique position. He got rid of all the competition and for several years he enjoyed a sunny side of his building career. But he has grown old and a new younger generation is knocking on the door. A nightmare. Horror. Or even, God forbid, burn-out! However, suddenly Solness´ fan Hilda appears and she wants him to build a kingdom for her, which he promised when she was a little child. This may be what the builder subconsciously called for and what he feared at the same time! Maybe this is the time when he can throw away all his obligations, wife and plans and start again! Yeah, right from the beginning! However, is the builder able to climb the tower which he built for himself?
