Take a world renowned Norwegian playwright, Henrik Ibsen, near the end of his life, and force him into a room with Norway’s favorite sculptor, Gustav Vigland, whose ambitions make it necessary for him to persuade a reluctant Ibsen to sit for him. Their battle begins. Debating how one wants to be remembered, whether what one leaves behind lasts longer than who one leaves behind, and ultimately how much grace one man can hope for teaches them both something unexpected. A startlingly beautiful play that explores the complicated relationship between Ibsen and Vigeland - Vigeland at the peak of his career, Ibsen at the end of his. This will be the regional premiere of this play by Pulitzer and Tony winner Doug Wright, who developed it initially with the support of the Ingram New Works Fellowship.
