TEHRAN –(Iranart)- Iranian director Saeid Karimi will restage Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen’s penultimate play “John Gabriel Borkman” at Tehran’s Molavi Hall on Thursday.
The play is about a disgraced former bank manager who pads around like “a sick wolf” in the cage of his home. Jailed for years, he now sulks in his study while his aggrieved wife prowls around downstairs.
Shadi Shahali, Faezeh Amiri, Abolfazl Salahshur, Maryam Hajizadeh and Shahab Salehi are the main members of the cast for the play, which will be on stage for about two months.
Henrik Ibsen, internationally acclaimed during his lifetime and one hundred years after his death, remains among the most popular studied and produced playwrights ever.
