Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) is, without a doubt, among the most influential playwrights in the history of the Theatre. He has been generally acknowledged since the 1880's to be one of the greatest masters of the modern drama. It is with good reason that he is often referred to as the "Father of Modern Theatre," for the roots of most 20th Century drama can be traced directly back to plays such as "Ghosts," "Hedda Gabler," and, of course, "A Doll's House."
