This sexually-charged study of faith and heartbreak, widely considered Ibsen’s darkest and most complex play, mines the tension between old and new, between conservatism and progressivism, between liberation and servitude. “Revive Rosmersholm for regime change,” says Variety, “It is a ‘Break Glass in Case of Emergencies,’ sort of play.” Set against the backdrop of political upheaval, the play has the moral force of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People, laced with the personal agony of his Ghosts. Ibsen’s most popular play during his lifetime, Rosmersholm is a political and romantic thriller that feels utterly relevant to ours.
