It is hard today to appreciate the shock that swept through British theatre when Ibsen’s play was first performed in London in the 1880s. To have one character dying of venereal disease and a wife walking out on her highly respectable husband, slamming the door…well!!! Too much for the Victorians but perhaps really refreshing for our theatre.
