About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is widely regarded as the father of modern drama. His works are renowned for their exploration of contemporary social issues and morality. He was born in Norway on March 20th, 1828, and is considered to be one of the most influential playwrights in history. Ibsen's plays focused heavily on realism and naturalism, which allowed him to create thought-provoking pieces that often challenged societal norms.

Ibsen is credited with creating works such as A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, The Wild Duck, An Enemy of the People and The Master Builder. Each piece addressed individual themes such as freedom versus repression; women’s rights; hypocrisy; marriage; duty; responsibility and authority - ultimately paving the way for a new style of dramatic theatre.
