A MASTER BUILDER is a witty, mystical and psychologically complex interpretation of Ibsen’s masterpiece that tells the story of Halvard Solness (Wallace Shawn), a very successful architect in his sixties. He exercises tight control over his wife Aline (Julie Hagerty) who has never stopped mourning the death of their two infant children. The story delves deep into his relationships with his employees the old architect Knut Brovik (André Gregory), Brovik’s talented son Ragnar (Jeff Biehl) whom Solness keeps in a lowly position, and Kaya (Emily McDonnell), Ragnar’s fiancée, who is Solness’s book-keeper and sexual companion. When Hilde (Lisa Joyce), a mysterious young woman comes to visit, the once dominating, controlling and narcissistic Solness finds himself apparently revived in every possible way.
