Halvard Solness, a brilliantly successful architect, has willed his unspoken desire into reality at every turn—but not without a price.  Now he lives in fear that the next generation will rise up and cast him aside. When Hilda Wangel, a bewitching young woman, arrives to collect on a decade-old debt, she breathes new life into the Solness home but also rekindles painful memories. Will she help him reach the pinnacle, or will she be the one to finally knock the Master Builder from his tower?

Directed by OBIE Award winner Evan Yionoulis (Yale Rep's Richard II and Black Snow), The Master Builder is a taut psychological drama by Henrik Ibsen, author of A Doll's House and Hedda Gabler.

Running time is approximately two hours including one 15-minute intermission.
