Description

The Helmers are all set to enjoy Christmas. Torvald has been promoted and Nora is delighted. Everything at last seems to be going right, until a visitor arrives uninvited and causes them to question just how perfect their marriage is. Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House caused outrage both in its style and subject matter when first staged in 1879. Zinnie Harris' retelling is played against the backdrop of British politics at the turn of the last century - to reveal a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule. Zinnie Harris' version of A Doll's House opened at the Donmar Theatre, London, in May 2009.

Author Biography

Henrik Johan Ibsen (1828 - 1906) was a major 19th-century Norwegian playwright of realistic drama and poet. He is often referred to as the 'father of modern drama' and is one of the founders of modernism in the theatre. His plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when Victorian values of family life and propriety largely held sway in Europe and any challenge to them was considered immoral and outrageous. Ibsen's work examined the realities that lay behind many facades, possessing a revelatory nature that was disquieting to many contemporaries. Ibsen introduced a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
