In search of an antihero

In the Guardian British actor Antony Sher, who is currently rehearsing Enemy of the People, writes about his quest to find Henrik Ibsen. Excerpt:
Nearby stood ­another statue of the playwright – a ­giant figure, striding forward with bearded chin held high, heading for the history books. It looked preposterous, particularly as, along with Chekhov, ­Ibsen invented the theatrical antihero.
