NEW TRANSLATION
By Henrik Ibsen
Translated from the Norwegian by Paul Walsh
Directed by Carey Perloff
With Catherine CombsDavid CoulterTom Pecinka, Thom SesmaUma Thurman, Bernard White

With great happiness, Mrs. Alving (Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Uma Thurman) welcomes her painter son Oswald (Tom Pecinka) home from years of living abroad. But when he starts to flirt with the family maid (Catherine Combs), she must intercede to save her son and herself from scandals present and past. Mrs. Alving struggles to find joy in a life bound by the strictures of Pastor Manders (Bernard White) and the spectral chains of mistakes from long ago. Directed by Carey Perloff, Henrik Ibsen‘s vivid and passionate play asks – even now – how far one mother, caught between duty and desire, can or should go to protect her family.
