Judgement Day at The Print Room
Judgement Day is coming to The Print Room, west London, from 16 Nov 2011 - 17 Dec 2011.
Judgement Day, is a new adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s When We Dead Awaken, written by Mike Poulton, directed by James Dacre , produced by The Print Room, design by Mike Britton.
Judgement Day is play about art and artists. Its central character, the sculptor Rubek, exhibits all the extraordinary passion and fantastical drive that was an essential part of Ibsen’s own creative character. Whilst holidaying with his young wife, Rubek encounters his muse: a woman that he loved and left a lifetime ago. What follows is a heartfelt examination of how Rubek has used these two.
Over a series of heated encounters, the entire scroll of Rubek’s life is unrolled in Ibsen’s final – and most autobiographical - exploration of what it means to love and to be loved. A study in the destructive power of the creative impulse, Judgement Day examines some of the strangest and most mysterious areas of human behaviour.
