"The pleasures of Ibsen's play are contained in this adaptation. We see clearly the emerging mind of the modern middle class—its concerns, habits, politics, contradictions, and fears. For this level of society, which never feels as secure as the higher ones (the aristocrats, industrialists, and financiers), crime, madness, bad breeding, and reckless sexuality can, and indeed will, result in diseases and in the destruction of one's wealth and reputation. As these concerns and themes are played out on the stage, one begins to notice and feel the deep silence that surrounds this little middle-class world. When the actors don't speak, the silence fills the theater and one feels each character is looming above an abyss, a void, a nothingness that can consume them at any moment. But somehow the words return, the story resumes, and the silence recedes." (Charles Mudede)
