Previews from 25 January 2016
The Old Vic
A searing and mesmeric exploration of power, control, death and life, Henrik Ibsen’s late masterpiece The Master Builder comes to The Old Vic in a lively new adaptation by David Hare.
Halvard Solness, a master architect, has spent his lifetime building the tallest spires in the land. But when Hilde, a radiant country girl, descends unexpectedly into his world, age is confronted by youth, and a series of revelations builds to a vertiginous climax.
