Young Australian director Simon Stone has already managed to impress European theatergoers with his original adaptations of Ibsen and Chekhov, and even Erdman and Arbuzov. The director fearlessly rewrites the plays, using masterpieces as a myth. In John Gabriel Borkman the action takes place in modern Europe that is trying to overcome the consequences of the massive financial catastrophe. Successful banker John Gabriel Borkman, sentenced to five years in jail for embezzlement, voluntarily extends his own imprisonment after his release. For eight years he refuses to leave his own house. The title role is played by outstanding German actor Martin Wuttke.
