Stark and surprising modern adaptation
This article is from 2011.
A boldly minimal, variably acted and oddly updated adaptation of Ibsen’s great drama from the young actors of Palindrome Theatre Company of Austin, Texas. One of the Norwegian Bard’s characters will, we are told, ‘piss his pants’, another is ‘a piece of shit’; textual alterations which are incongruous in an otherwise classically-oriented production. Robin Grace Thompson gives a resonating performance in the title role.
