The Master Builder is one of the later plays of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, known around the world as “the father of modern drama.” It tells the story of aging architect Halvard Solness, a man who fears being made obsolete by the younger generation, and his encounter with Hilde Wangel, a young woman come knocking on his door to claim a prize which once he promised her. The dense fabric of this play blends realism, symbolism, and magic to explore hubris, madness, and the dynamics between generations. Colby Teaching Artist Bess Welden plays Halvard Solness.
