Link to access reading:

The classic play John Gabriel Borkman by Henrik Ibsen revolves around the title character, a great man who is wealthy, powerful, and revered. John Gabriel gave up love for success and was handsomely rewarded. But now, the former bank director, is disgraced and destitute after a financial scandal and imprisonment. In speaking of the LAB presentation, Ernest Abuba stated "Begin from the bottom again. It's only by his present and his future that a man can expiate his me build this new life?" John R. Briggs added "The play is the relentless and ruthless pursuit of power that leads to loss and perdition."
