Dramatist Ben is drunk (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ibsen

'dramatist' is the definition.
(Ibsen is an example)

'ben is drunk' is the wordplay.
'drunk' is an anagram indicator.
'ben'+'is'='benis'
'benis' is an anagram of 'IBSEN'.

(Other definitions for ibsen that I've seen before include "Scandinavian playwright" , "Is Ben a playwright?" , "Henrik -, dramatist from fourteen down (Hedda Gabler)" , "Norwegian dramatist, d. 1906" , "Noted Norwegian playwright" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
