"Wallace Shawn is one of the most complex and uncompromising moralists of the American theater." - Ben Brantley, New York Times

"At once the U.S.'s most profound and overlooked playwright." - David Hare

This translation and adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Master Builder Solness by Wallace Shawn, a writer known for his own bleakly hilarious and provocative plays, was used by legendary director Andr Gregory during fifteen years of work on a theatrical production which, instead of being produced as a play, was made into a film by Jonathan Demme--a film that is an utterly contemporary vision of Ibsen's classic play.

HENRIK IBSEN (1828-1906) is the author of "A Doll's House, Hedda Gabler, Brand, Peer Gynt" and "The Master Builder" among many others.

WALLACE SHAWN is the author of "Our Late Night" (OBIE Award for Best Play), "Grasses of a Thousand Colors," "The Designated Mourner," "Marie and Bruce," "Aunt Dan and Lemon," "The Fever," and the screenplay for "My Dinner with Andre."
