About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is considered one of the greatest playwrights in history. He was born in Norway, and his work focused on themes of freedom and individualism, as well as social criticism. His plays are still read and performed today, with ever-growing relevance to modern audiences.

Ibsen wrote his first play in 1867, titled “Catiline”. After this he produced a series of other works that looked into gender roles, marriage and class structures within society. His most famous plays include “A Doll’s House” (1879) which discussed the role of women in relationships; “Hedda Gabler” (1890) which explored the conflicts between passion and duty; and “An Enemy of the People” (1882), which dealt with corruption within government systems.
