A Scandinavian House at Grand
UK Touring Theatre brings a brand-new English version of A Doll’s House, Henrik Ibsen’s groundbreaking play about marriage, money, and the freedom of women in the late 19th century, to the Grand in Lancaster on Thursday October 30.
Following the success of their national tour of Strindberg’s Miss Julie in 2013, this powerful new production of another Scandinavian classic is touring to theatres across the country.
Set in 19th century Norway, A Doll’s House explores the relationship of Torvald and Nora Helmer, whose ‘perfect’ marriage is not what it seems.
The play shocked and divided critics across Europe with its depiction of a woman struggling to survive in a man’s world, and Nora’s rejection of the ‘ideal’ family life.
Director Michael Woodwood says: “It is a very powerful piece. Every woman can relate to Nora and the social roles that she plays, as daughter, wife and mother. Every woman should see this play once in their lifetime.”
