Quantum Theatre presents...
JOHN GABRIEL BORKMAN
by Henrik Ibsen
Hart Building: 6022 Broad Street, Pgh, PA 15206 (in East Liberty)
Quantum Theatre, known for staging its productions in unique places that aren’t theatres, creates a classic Ibsen drama under the helm of Martin Giles
Greed is good, according to Ibsen’s John Gabriel Borkman—until it sends him to prison for embezzlement and leaves him ruined and disgraced, but desperate for a comeback. Released from the big house, John Gabriel paces alone in the attic room of his own once-grand dwelling, a nightmare to those below. Downstairs his wife and former mistress —who happens to be her sister—are in for a bumpy night. A scorching indictment of 19th century capitalism, this timely tale of one man’s undoing in the wake of relentless deception and fraud could be ripped from today’s headlines, it anticipates Bernie Madoff by 100 years. But only the Father of Modern Drama could offer these starkly gorgeous characterizations that tell us how unbridled lust for money and power will make you crazy.
