Why See A Doll's House?
London's Young Vic transfer their acclaimed production of A Dolls House to Broadway, with theatre's rising star Hattie Morahan once again claiming the lead role in what critic's called a "once-in-a-lifetime performance."
The play revolves around the central character, Nora, whose seemingly peaceful married life starts to crumble when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her and she finds herself struggling to find a balance between societal marital expectations and her own needs for self-determination.
A Dolls House was written by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen and premiered in 1879. The play was, and still is, an extremely significant artistic work due to its critical view of 19th century marriage and sympathetic view of a women's role in married life - something quite uncommon for the time in which it was written.
