IBSEN IN CHICAGO Now On Sale at Seattle Rep
Ibsen In Chicago by David Grimm world premiere directed by Braden Abraham In 1882, an unlikely ensemble of scrappy Scandinavian immigrants converge to put on a play in Boomtown Chicago. As this ragtag group of new Americans rehearse a controversial new play written by their fellow countryman Henrik Ibsen, their various enmities and misunderstandings take on vaudevillian proportions.
Bricklayer turned impresario Henning Folden has a chance to fulfill a dream, but first he has to keep the real world at bay and get his cast to opening night in this world premiere comedy.
