The League of Youth

Often considered to be Ibsen’s most popular play in his lifetime, The League of Youth caused fighting in the streets, with conservatives claiming it was an attack on their party and liberals claiming it was an attack on theirs! A thought-provoking comedy that’s sure to feel shockingly familiar.

Unusually for Ibsen, this play has a lot of humour and a more-or-less happy ending.
