Best Henrik Ibsen Plays

Written by on | Playwrights

Henrik Ibsen is frequently ranked as one of the great playwrights of all time. The Norwegian playwright is considered one of the founders of Modernism and is, in my opinion, a master of story structure. His plays are universal and that’s why his work is still performed regularly on stages around the world today.

I was part of a production of ‘Pillars of Society’ and the rich, complex text gave us much room for interpretation and stylisation. Though a playwright of the 19th-century, his text is still very relevant and thought-provoking. He is a must read for actors, directors and playwrights.

He is a master of storytelling. This is something we come back to again and again on the site. As an actor you have to understand how to tell a story. Working through some of these classic Ibsen plays will be a huge learning experience. After much thought, and a fair bit of reading, here are our favourite Ibsen plays:
