This work, written by Ibsen in 1896, captures the passions of a generation and remains extraordinarily relevant today. The son of a coal-miner, John Gabriel Borkman became a bank manager. In order to rise up through the social ranks, he left a woman and married her twin sister for her money. He embezzled the funds entrusted to him, and after his release from prison locked himself in his room for eight years, until the last night of his life. It is on this night that the play is set.

This bold staging of John Gabriel Borkmann – filtered through the directorial vision of Thomas Ostermeier – boasts celebrated actors of the German stage in its lead roles. It received excellent reviews in France and Germany, where it has already played, and is highly anticipated by Peiraios 260 audiences.
