RECOMMENDED Does anyone else play a compelling shitheel quite like John Henry Roberts? Michael Shannon maybe? … Roberts and company fill Samuel Adamson's heady, dense adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's story of immigration, capitalism, and cultural revolution with plenty of heat and tension … There's exceptional work on display up and down the massive cast …

Lies don't last forever. The truth comes for all of us.

The return of a fugitive brother puts the future of wealthy businessman Karsten Bernick in peril. Details of a long-buried sex scandal and embezzlement come to the surface and force Bernick to face his family, his community and his demons. Adamson's version of Ibsen's 1877 moral drama was first produced at the National Theatre in 2005 to critical acclaim. Ensemble member Elly Green (After Miss Julie, The Night Season) directs our first production in the new Strawdog Theatre at 1802 W Berenice.
