1918. 1968. 2018. Three distinct and remarkable women illuminate this distilled contemporary retelling of Henrik Ibsen’s play 'A Doll’s House' across three pivotal decades.
Nora Helmer tries hard to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, the perfect homemaker— but under the veneer she’s close to cracking. Over the course of three days, Nora finds herself at an impassable crossroad. She has a radical decision to make, as secrets and lies tear at the seams, pulling apart everything she has ever known.
Henrik Ibsen's brutal portrayal of womanhood caused outrage when it was first performed in 1879; with its stark portrayal of female married life. This searing adaptation by award-winning writer Stef Smith transforms the play’s central character into a choral multitude that spans and fuses discrete generations. This is a play rooted in the women’s rights movement, exploring how tightly bound women still are by social convention— even as the world seemingly opens up.
With original sound and music composed by emerging artist, Francis.
