Country: Europe / Norway flag Norway
Description:
Ibsen's 1879 play shocked its first audiences with its radical insights into the social roles of husband and wife.

This revised edition contains introductory commentary and notes by Sophie Duncan, which offer a contemporary lens on the play's gender politics and consider seminal productions of the play into the 21st century.

Country: Europe / Norway flag Norway
Description:
From the internationally acclaimed author comes a new, electrifying stand-alone thriller set in Oslo in the 1970s. The story of an unusually complicated contract killer - the perfectly sympathetic antihero - that is, as well, an edgy, almost lyrical meditation on death and love. Olav lives the lonely life of a fixer. When you 'fix' people for a living - terminally - it's hard to get close to anyone. Now he's finally met the woman of his dreams. But there are two problems. She's his boss' wife. And Olav's just been hired to kill her.

Uno de los temas que están presentes a lo largo de todo su teatro -la mujer como ser capaz de elegir libremente- llega a su cima en la Nora de "Casa de muñecas" (1879) y en la protagonista de "Hedda Gabler" (1890). Si la primera obra fue causa de uno de los mayores escándalos en la historia del teatro occiden... continue
