Simon Russell Beale stars as the title character in Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece at the Bridge Theatre in autumn 2022. John Gabriel Borkman tickets are available on London Theatre now.
The John Gabriel Borkman play follows the eponymous entrepreneur and bank manager as he navigates a complicated career. At one point, Borkman was flying high, however his problematic decision making was eventually caught out. By speculating with his investors’ money, Borkman found himself serving a lengthy prison sentence for fraud. Even when he's in jail, Borkman dreams of making a grand comeback. That’s pretty difficult to achieve when you’re cooped up inside four walls though.
At the same time, Mrs. Borkman dreams of restoring the “Borkman” name and finding their former glory. That's easier said than done though, especially When her twin sister Ella Rentheim knocks on the door. The Borkmans find themselves arguing over their past and struggle to reconcile their differences.
Simon Russell Beale will play the title character in John Gabriel Borkman. The award-winning actor recently won his first Tony for The Lehman Trilogy on Broadway. However in recent years, Beale’s regularly performed at the Bridge Theatre, previously leading the Bach & Sons and A Christmas Carol companies. Now, he takes on another title role at the Bridge Theatre in autumn 2022.
Lucinda Coxon adapts the rarely-staged Henrik Ibsen play, John Gabriel Borkman, for the Bridge Theatre, in autumn 2022. John Gabriel Borkman was initially announced in 2019 for 2020 performances, but due to the pandemic, the show was cancelled by two years. Don't miss the long-awaited and highly-anticipated John Gabriel Borkman at the Bridge Theatre.
