A Doll’s House
by Henrik Ibsen (translation by Simon Stephens)
Directed by Chris Hearn
Monday 29th May – Saturday 3rd June 2017
Nora Helmer has illegally borrowed some money by forging a signature. Her creditor threatens to ruin her husband, Helmer, by exposing the fraud. Helmer is not prepared to sacrifice his reputation to protect Nora and she then realises her marriage is doomed.
The play focuses on the visit of the fragile Blanche Du Bois to her sister Stella in New Orleans. This is the first time that Blanche has met Stella’s husband, Stanley
Kowalski, and she finds much that shocks her, including the news that Stella is pregnant. During the summer, Blanche meets Stanley’s friend Mitch in whom she sees
someone who might save her from her current problems.
It is 1947 and in this post-war city of the Deep South, the jazz, the booze and the sultry summer heat all
contribute to the tensions of this powerful drama, often regarded as one of the greatest of the twentieth century.
