The plight of women in the 19th century- and now?- read Ibsen!
on 27 April 2017
How can you become tired of Ibsen? Forget those aweful "new interpretations" by some theatre director with a fraction of Ibsen's talent who thinks that he/she knows better than Ibsen what Ibsen intended to convey! It's not necessary to give the plight of women in the 19th century a new spin for the benefit of an audience which supposedly has a short attention span, presumably because the dierctor thinks they have been conditioned by a diet of plays that choose to tell their story on TV or film through a succession of 10 second close-ups, and unfinished sentences . Any audience can work out the parallels with today!
