A Doll’s House


Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 belief that “a woman cannot be herself in modern society” comes to life in a startlingly contemporary way in this modern staging of one of the most celebrated classics of the theatre canon. Nora and Torvald Helmer believe they are happily married and on the brink of a new phase of life. But Nora has a secret. The unraveling of this secret, and Nora’s realization of her own position as a “doll” in her husband’s house was far too controversial for 1879 audiences, but rings harrowingly true – as Nora says – to “hundreds of millions of women” today.

Newly adapted.
