Henrik Ibsen’s John Gabriel Borkman opens its London performance on September 29 at the Bridge Theatre. Production began previews on September 24th and has showings through November 26th.

Tony winner Simon Russell Beale (The Lehman Trilogy, Jumpers) leads the cast as the titular John Gabriel Borkman, the cast is joined by Olivier winner Clare Higgins (Hecuba, Vincent in Brixton) as Gunhild Borkman and those for Olivier and Tony nominated Lia Williams (Skylight, Oresteia) as Ella Rentheim. Sebastian De Souza plays Erhart Borkman, Daisy Ou as Frida Foldal, Michael Simkins as Willhelm Foldal and Ony Uhiara as Fanny Wilton. The understudies are Nick Barclay, Hilary Derrett and Catharine Humphrys.

Olivier and Tony winner Nicholas Hytner (The History Boys, Carousel) directs the new version of the Ibsen work by Lucinda Coxon, with Isabel Marr acting as assistant director.

Ibsen’s play tells the story of entrepreneur John Gabriel Borkman, whose fate changes when he is sentenced to prison for fraud. Bankrupt and disgraced, he is obsessed with returning to success and fame in the isolation of an upstairs room while downstairs his estranged wife plots to restore the family name. However, all plans are disrupted by the arrival of her sister and a sudden confrontation with the past.

The creative team consists of Tony-nominated set designer Anna Fleischle, costume designer and assistant set designer Liam Bunster, lighting designer James Farncombe, sound designer Gareth Fry, costume designer Olivia Ward, props director Lily Mollgaard, production manager Kate West and voice coach Jeannette Nelson . Casting is by Robert Stars. Coxon’s version is based on Charlotte Barslund’s literal translation.
