Rosmersholm (1868) is considered one of Ibsen's greatest works, yet is rarely performed. The protaganist, a rich landowner, attempts to support the modern, liberal
development of the local community, but is besieged by his brother Kroll, who accuses him of being a traitor to his class, and at the same time he is tortured by the loss of his wife to suicide and his simultaneous attraction to Rebecca, a woman who has seemingly rejected all moral conventions.

One night Only, Monday, January 29th 8pm Old Finnish Hall, 1819 10th Street, Berkeley, near San Pablo & University. Pay-What-You-Can. There will be one intermission. No food in the main hall.
