A Doll’s House – “Ferociously raw and palpably radical”
Henrik Ibsen’s scandalous and scathing commentary on the way 19th century marriage worked and what underpinned it caused a stir back in 1879 when first performed. A Doll’s House is the world’s most frequently staged play and this production is something really special, with rave reviews for two previous sell-out stints at the Young Vic.
A Doll’s House - The story
On the face of things Nora has everything a nineteenth century woman could want; she’s a devoted wife with a loving family and a beautiful home. But behind the scenes there’s more than meets the eye. Hypocrisy and scandal lurk behind secretly the façade of her marriage and the relationship is poisoned by delusions. When she realises her secrets are going to come into the open, she is forced to make changes.
It’s intense, intelligent and acted with absolute clarity and perfection, a rare jewel in the West End’s already glittering crown. Perfect for adults who appreciate beautiful language, thought-provoking concepts and a dramatic storyline, as relevant today as it ever was.
Henrik Johan Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright, theatre director, and poet. Called the ‘father of realism’, he helped found Modernism in the theatre with major works like Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean and Hedda Gabler. His work is produced on stage more frequently worldwide than any playwright except Shakespeare. Quality stuff!
In the press
The production has inspired a great deal of media attention including discussions in The Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, on BBC Radio2, 3 and 4, BBC News, What’s On Stage, The Financial Times and more. Directed by the talented Carrie Cracknell with costumes by Gabrielle Dalton, the music is by Stuart Earl and choreography by Quinny Sacks.

Hattie Morahan was sensational in this show. Sadly yesterday was the end of the season!

This was a stunning production, a real privilage to have witnessed. As a lad of fourteen in 1953, I saw Mai Zetterling in the role of Nora at the Lyric Hammersmith and became a devoted fan. However, Hattie Morohan's portrayal last night was simply spell binding, a master class. However, it would be remiss of me to not heap equal praise on the whole cast and production team who made our journey down from the Cotswolds so rewarding and memorable. My wife and I cannot thank you all enough. We wish you every success in all your future endeavours,Sincerely, Victor S Bennie

We enjoyed this production very much. Pity the start was delayed by technical faults.
