The Master Builder
Ralph Fiennes takes to the Old Vic in this adaptation of Ibsen's Master Builder
Ralph Fiennes' love affair with the West End isn't showing any sign of slowing down any time soon. After a lauded turn in Man And Superman, he'll be making his way to The Old Vic to take the lead role in an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's The Master Builder. Fiennes plays Halvard Solness, a master builder with a fear of falling. A self-made man, he's well-respected in his town, but harbours a growing fear of being displaced by the young. A woman appears from the mountains claiming to have known him ten years ago and tells him of a promise he made to her when she was 13. Directed by David Hare, this is an intoxicating exploration of power, control, death and life that's certain to leave a lasting impact. From 2003-2015, Kevin Spacey was The Old Vic Theatre Company's artistic director, forever changing the fortune of this iconic London establishment. Now with Matthew Warchus at the helm, it remains an institution synonymous with quality productions. Get on your finest attire and get along to the Old Vic for a night of sheer theatrical bliss.

"The change will come. And it’s not far away, I promise you that. Some figure will emerge from the dark screaming ‘Get out of the way’. And not far behind others will follow…the young are waiting. In all their power. Knocking on the door.”
