あらすじ・解説

Born in 1828, Norwegian playwright, theatre director and poet Ibsen, wrote in Danish yet lived for many years in Italy and Germany. Heralded as one the most distinguished dramatists after Shakespeare, by the early 20th century A Doll's House became the world's most performed play. 

Hedda Gabler 

A poignant study of loneliness, impotent rage and societal expectations breeding a certain kind of madness, this trailblazing play focusses on Hedda Gabler, 'the general's daughter', and her rising feelings of anger and jealousy towards a former schoolmate, fuelled by her lack of control in her own life. When a former suitor comes back into her life, bringing with him all kinds of complication, passion and history, Hedda devises a plot to win back her power... which ultimately leads to a very civilized sort of chaos and, ultimately, tragedy. 

Full cast: Laura Carmichael, James Parkes, Rachel Atkins, Sarah Whitehouse, Christopher Dane, Harry Myers, Fiz Marcus. 

A Doll's House 

Nora Helmers is her husband Torvald's adorable 'little doll'. Pretty and doll-like in her doll's house with her healthy children and seemingly respectable life, she and her family have it all... or so it seems. Behind closed doors, like a lot of Ibsen's antiheroines, Nora is unhappy and unfulfilled. She is thoughtful, intelligent and trapped, playing the role of a dutiful wife in a situation that doesn't arouse any of her passions, in a society that believes that she shouldn't have any. A fascinating before-its-time window onto a world where expectations of women were streets apart from the contemporary world, Ibsen's masterpiece is a study in strength, determination and hard choices against all the odds. 

Full cast: Laura Carmichael, Edward Harrison, Christopher Dane, Sarah Whitehouse, Harry Myers, Jessica Dennis, Josephine Arden. 

An Enemy of the People 

A true classic and a play for our modern times in equal measure. A perhaps unintentional parody on 'fake news', the hysteria of the masses and publicly shaming individuals to the point of breakdown, this story follows one man's struggle to do the right thing and speak the truth in the face of extreme social intolerance. Sometimes farcical, sometimes terrifying, An Enemy of the People is a parable for crazy times and a cautionary tale for those who dare to challenge the establishment. 

Full cast: Owen Teale, Sarah Whitehouse, Christopher Dane, James Parkes, Edward Harrison, David Forest, Ben Whitehead, Harry Myers, Neil Frost, Paul Anthony, Liis Mikk, Josephine Arden.

brilliant as an audio

absolutely loved listening to these plays. I had heard Hedda Gabler before and the other 2 plays are just as good. Very easy to listen to again and again. A nice length. Highly recommend.

Nothing about a lot of a lot about nothing

Being unfamiliar with Ibsen I listened with an expectation of experiencing serious drama. I was disappointed. The themes were weak, the stories reminiscent of Victorian melodramatic moral tales, light in substance and superficial in emotion. Well presented and acted, but very disappointing.

It was just Ok.

Although I did enjoy the language used at that time I was bitterly disappointed with the endings, I couldn't even finish the second story it dragged on and on.......

Loved these, brilliant.

Oh my word, there is something so amazing about Laura Carmichael's voice, so beautifully pronounced that I never want anyone to hear me speak again lol.

Hedda Gabler 5 / 5, I wanted it to go on for hours.
A Doll's House 4.5 / 5, again brilliantly performed.
An Enemy of the People 4 / 5, sort of lost track with the poodles lol.

listen if you get the chance, I still can't believe this was free, superb all round, very much enjoyed. Thank you to all the cast and Audible for the gift of audio.

Strong characters and storylines

I listened to Hedda Gabler first, found the story built and lead to a climax, very ahead of its time. An Enemy of the People is a very clever story, very relevant to today's politics and how society can be fooled and create anti-heroes. Much recommended.
