Celebrating the Life and Work of Henrik Ibsen
Royal MTC is pleased to present the 2019 Master Playwright Festival which will highlight the work and life of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. MTC is thrilled to contribute two productions (A Doll's House, A Doll’s House Part 2) to this collaborative festival. IbsenFest will offer a wonderful opportunity for emerging and established artists to present groundbreaking works penned by "the father of realism".
