The Master Builder by Henrik Ibsen. Adapted by David Hare based on a literal translation by Torkil Heggstad. Episode 1. The master builder Halvard Solness, is a self-made man, without professional qualifications. He has achieved ruthless domination in the town, but is increasingly frightened of being displaced by the next generation. A young woman, Hilde Wangel , appears from the mountains, claiming to have known Solness ten years previously, and telling him of a promise he made to her when she was thirteen. A searing tale of middle aged male hubris, with mystical undertones and resonances for the #MeToo movement.
