About John Gabriel Borkman

See the Tony-winning actor Simon Russell Beale in Henrik Ibsen's John Gabriel Borkman at the Bridge Theatre in autumn 2022. Book John Gabriel Borkman tickets on TodayTix today.

Simon Russell Beale is a regular at the Bridge Theatre. He’s starred as the titular music maestro in Bach & Sons and played Ebenezer Scrooge in a three-person adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Now, he’ll turn his hand to the rarely-performed Henrik Ibsen play, newly adapted by Lucinda Coxon.

Beale recently gave a Tony-winning turn in The Lehman Trilogy on Broadway. His Lehman Trilogy performance was hailed by New York Theatre Guide as “a knockout performance by a virtuosic star”. He’s sure to deliver a similar punch in John Gabriel Borkman.

John Gabriel Borkman was once a great man. He held an influential position in society with plenty of material and political wealth. But when he's sentenced for fraud, everything comes crashing down and he has to plan his comeback.

At the same time, John's wife Gunhild dreams of putting the ‘Borkman’ name back on the map. It's tricky to restore the family's reputation when Gunhild's twin sister Ella arrives on the Bokrman doorstep. Will anything work out the same way again?

Tell Me More

We’ve waited patiently for John Gabriel Borkman on stage. The play was due to run in 2020, but was postponed by two years due to the pandemic. Now, you can catch the Ibsen play at the Bridge Theatre during its limited engagement.

Henrik Ibsen's plays typically force audiences to reevaluate their way of living. As characters are left with no choice but to inwardly look at themselves, those watching an Ibsen play go through a similar journey. Historians debate over the basis for John Gabriel Borkman, as events in the play reflect the suicide of an army officer who was accused of embezzlement.

What to Watch For:

  • Frank McGuiness previously adapted John Gabriel Borkman on stage. Alan Rickman and Fiona Shaw starred in the Ibsen play at the Abbey Theatre.
  • John Gabriel Borkman was Henrik Ibsen’s penultimate play. His final work was When We Dead Awaken, published in 1889.
  • John Gabriel Borkman sees Lucinda Coxon return to the Bridge Theatre. Her 2019 play, Alys, Always, ran for a month at the central London venue.
