“The streamlined production is done in period costume but feels thoroughly modern as it brilliantly shows how a simple truth can become twisted and distorted…This fast-moving adaptation could be called Ibsen lite—same themes, less filler. It loses some of the richness of Ibsen’s language but makes his story more accessible. Ibsen was most concerned with the failings of democracy but his other point is even clearer here: Politicians see facts as the enemy." Full Review
See it if you'd appreciate a powerfully- acted 100 year old play about issues as relevant to today's political climate as it was back in the day
Don't see it if you want mindless entertainment ; don't care to be morally, socially or politically challenged ; you're a classic play 'purist'
See it if you enjoy a confidently quiet type of realistic acting and could benefit from having Ibsen remind you (or a friend) that facts are facts!
Don't see it if you recoil at translations that tinker with a classic by introducing new characters, adding expositional text, or changing the end.
See it if You are willing to deal with moral dilemmas, the stigmatization of those who decide to expose truth at a great cost.
Don't see it if You don't want to deal with moral dilemas.
Also The acting was superb!
