Yale Rep notes for The Master Builder read: "Halvard Solness, a brilliantly successful architect, has willed his unspoken desire into reality at every turn — but not without a price. Now he lives in fear that the next generation will rise up and cast him aside. When Hilda Wangel, a bewitching young woman, arrives to collect on a decade-old debt, she breathes new life into the Solness home but also rekindles painful memories. Will she help him reach the pinnacle, or will she be the one to finally knock the Master Builder from his tower?"
The Yale Rep production will have set design by Timothy Brown, costume design by Katherine Akiko Day, lighting design by Paul Whitaker, with sound design and original music by Scott L. Nielsen. Dramaturgs are Maya Cantu and Colin Mannex.
