Stengaard, a rising politician, gathers a new party around him, promising to rid the country of a corrupt old guard.  Soon, he's embroiled in social and amorous intrigue as he seeks to gain power and make an advantageous marriage. One of Ibsen’s few comedies, the play was criticized by Norway’s Liberals and Conservatives, each thinking the play was about them. Today’s audience members might also find some of the political characters strangely familiar.

“It’s all the same to me whether the pig eats the dog or the dog eats the pig.”
