A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, adapted by Samuel Adamson
It is Christmas in the Helmer household and Nora and her husband Torvald are celebrating the season with their two children. When Nora receives an unexpected and unwelcome visit the idyllic family home is shattered. Over ‘three long days’ secrets and lies are revealed creating a chasm of such magnitude that things can never be the same again.
A Doll’s House is the most performed play in the world. It continues to fascinate actors, directors and theatre goers who are drawn to the story of Nora Helmer, ‘the little sky lark’, whose emotional roller coaster of a journey is starkly displayed as the walls of ‘the doll’s house’ begin to crumble and the foundations collapse. Losing none of Ibsen’s spellbinding plot, Samuel Adamson’s taut,accessible script resonates strongly with modern audiences, clearly illustrating the perrenial tensions that challenge our relationships.
A sexy, passionate interpretation of Ibsen, challenging and truthful.
