What is Ibsen's Rosmersholm about?
Written in 1886 by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen in the nineteenth-century well-made-play genre and regarded as a significant piece in Norwegian literature, Rosmersholm is an edge-of-your-seat thriller with twists and turns to keep you hooked from start to finish. It follows a country on the brink of its most important election as a flock of frenzied journalists come out for 'the smoking gun' that could damn revolutionary supporter and clergyman John Rosmer, whose past comes back to haunt him. One of Ibsen's greatest heroines, Rebecca West, swoops in for the kill as she comes to thrash the Rosmersholm estate with her winds of change. Featuring hidden agendas and shocks abound, Rosmersholm is a true embodiment of 'dirty politics.'
