About Henrik Ibsen

Henrik Ibsen is a world-renowned Norwegian playwright who has left an indelible mark on the theatre world. He was born in 1828 in Skien, Norway, and after growing up there with his family, he moved to Christiania (now Oslo). His early plays were written while he was living in Italy and Dresden, but it wasn’t until he returned to Norway that he penned his most acclaimed works. Ibsen’s plays often explored social issues such as gender roles, sexuality, and marriage. He is credited for creating a new genre of drama known as “naturalism” which featured realistic settings and characters. His best-known works include A Doll's House (1879), Ghosts (1881), An Enemy of the People (1882) and Hedda Gabler (1890). Find out more about Henrik Ibsen at
