Photo Flash: Almeida Theater Presents THE MASTER BUILDER
Joining Gemma Arterton as Hilde Wangel and Stephen Dillane as Halvard Solness in the Almeida Theatre production of The Master Builder are Patrick Godfrey as Knut Brovik, Emma Hamilton as Kaja Fosli, Anastasia Hille as Aline Solness, John Light as Ragnar Brovik and Jack Shepherd as Doctor Herdal.
Directed by Travis Preston and in Kenneth McLeish's translation of Henrik Ibsen's original, The Master Builder previews from 12 November and runs until 8 January 2011, with press night on 18 November. Designs are by Vicki Mortimer with lighting by Paul Pyant and sound by John Leonard.
Master Builder Halvard Solness has reached the pinnacle of his career. But at a cost; his family life is in ruins and he lives in fear that the next generation will rise up and brush him aside. When Hilde Wangel, a bewitching young woman, arrives to collect a decade-old debt, she breathes new life into his professional pride. As Halvard completes his architectural masterpiece, will Hilde be the Master Builder's ultimate downfall?
