Description

Nora seems to have it all: a successful husband, three adorable children, and a beautiful home in the tiny Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. But what looks like the perfect life is woefully incomplete, propped up by dark secrets and bitter betrayals. While her husband, Terry, single-mindedly climbs the career ladder, Nora's compulsive shopping and scheming pushes her ever further from freedom and self-fulfillment. As the lies on which their life is built gradually emerge, Nora comes to realize the true cost of what she thinks she has always wanted. From Ibsen's masterpiece ""A Doll's House"", award-winning playwright Rebecca Gilman crafts a bold and insightful update. This contemporary adaptation brings Ibsen's classic into our century with a sharp eye for social satire and moments of dark comedy coupled with powerful human drama.
