A Doll's House

by Henrik Ibsen translated by Simon Stephens

9th to 16th November 2019

We are delighted to bring Ibsen back to our stage with this masterpiece.

The Helmer household seems perfect, but over Christmas 1879, housewife and mother Nora realises this is not the case. A visit from an old friend, a threat of blackmail, the discovery of a past transgression, and a confession of a secret, all jolt Nora ‘awake’ to her situation. As the walls close in, Nora takes matters into her own hands with life- changing consequences.

Simon Stephen’s translation debuted at the Young Vic in 2012, starring Hattie Morahan.

The critically acclaimed production later transferred to the West End.

This production contains some smoking.

“I don’t care what other people say. I don’t care what people write in books. I need to think for myself.”
