Growing up, Ibsen watched his mother suffer, bound by a sense of duty in a loveless marriage, trapped in the domestic world with no way of escape. Desperate to bring her plight, and that of all women, to light, led him to create some of his most famous heroines. Now, Ibsen sits with his psychotherapist, lamenting the traditional gender roles and cultural assumptions about marriage and motherhood that forced him to put Nora Helmer and Hedda Gabbler (among others) on the stage and into the public eye.

"All this demanding to be happy in life. It’s all part of the same wanton idea. What right have people to happiness?"
