This bold new imagining of Ibsen’s 19th Century classic gives the tale a new twist. Set in the same year of 1879, Tanika Gupta’s adaptation is set not in Norway, but Calcutta. Niru, a young Bengali woman is married to an English colonial bureaucrat, Tom. Bringing new lenses of gender, race and power with the colonial backdrop, this classic is given some poignant new twists.
