Mike Poulton's "Judgement day" is adapted from "When We Dead Awaken, the last play Ibsen wrote before his death. First staged in 1899, it is rarely performed, yet is one of his most extraordinary and deeply personal works. 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. 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. This new adaptation was first performed at The Print Room in north London, November 2011.
