“I am thrilled to be back at the Huntington working on a play that so brilliantly exposes the challenges of marriage, and speaks with surprising eloquence to us. Ibsen is not only writing about a woman's need for independence, but about how we all struggle to be our genuine selves while meeting the needs of our society and our relationships.”— Melia Bensussen
