Judgement Day



Henrik Ibsen, Adapted by Mike Poulton


Nick Hern Books

“Poulton is the adapter of the moment.” -- Observer

“Essential for anyone interested in Ibsen’s progress, and also decline.” -- Daily Telegraph

“The dialogue is crammed with evocations of pain and terror, rendered with startling vividness in Poulton’s text.” -- The Times

“Credit to writer Mike Poulton whose new version of the play gives human scale to a forbidding expedition.” -- Daily Mail

Adapted from When We Dead Awaken, the last play Ibsen wrote before his death. First staged in 1899, Ibsen's play is rarely performed, yet is one of his most extraordinary and deeply personal works.

Whilst holidaying with his young wife, the sculptor Rubek encounters his muse: a woman that he loved and left a lifetime ago. Over a series of heated encounters, the entire scroll of Rubek’s life is unrolled in Ibsen’s final – and most autobiographical – exploration of what it means to love and be loved.

Set within a mythical Nordic landscape, the play offers an explicit and merciless portrait of Ibsen as an ageing artist: restless with his art, his homeland and his married life.
