John Gabriel Borkman has barricaded himself in the attic of his house. He needs to gain an understanding of what is left of his financial empire. After the banker’s spectacular rise came the fall and, with it, an eight-year sentence for committing ruthless fraud. He is ruined, his reputation in tatters and his family  completely alienated. His son is the only person who would be able to restore his reputation.

Simon Stone’s interpretation of Ibsen’s drama explores the fault lines of current deficiencies in the canon of values in bourgeois Europe in the wake of the continent’s greatest financial disaster.
