Professor Kirsten Shepherd Barr discusses Ibsen's Production at The Old Vic

The Old Vic is currently producing Henrik Ibsen’s ‘The Master Builder’ adapted by David Hare and starring Ralph Fiennes, and has just released  a short video in which Fiennes and St Catz English Fellow, Professor Kirsten Shepherd-Barr, discuss aspects of the play.

Professor Shepherd-Barr's work on Ibsen includes the books Ibsen and Early Modernist Theatre and Theatre and Evolution from Ibsen to Beckett, and she has worked with theatre companies in Britain and America on Ibsen productions.  She founded both the Ibsen Phenomenon network and the Nordic Network at TORCH and is serving as Knowledge Exchange Champion for the Humanities at Oxford.
