This Autumn, UK Touring Theatre presents the World Premiere of 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.
Following the success of their highly-acclaimed national tour of Strindberg’s Miss Julie in 2013, this powerful new production of another Scandinavian classic is touring to theatres across the UK from September to November, coming to the Capstone Theatre in Liverpool Hope University in October.
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. The opinions of audiences were also divided. So much so, that invitations to social gatherings at the time would often include the note: “You are requested not to mention Ibsen’s Doll’s House!”. Now widely regarded as Ibsen’s masterpiece, it has received worldwide critical acclaim and in 2006 it was the world’s most performed play.
