Playwright: Henrik Ibsen


In Henrik Ibsen's 1881 play, Mrs. Alving plans to dedicate an orphanage to the memory of her late husband, but confesses to Pastor Manders that her supposedly upstanding husband was actually a philanderer. The effects of his indiscretions are still apparent in their disease-afflicted son and the maid he has fallen for.
