Following two sell-out runs at the Young Vic, Henrik Ibsen’s timeless masterpiece A Doll’s House transfers to the Duke of York’s theatre this summer for 12 weeks only.
Award-winning actress Hattie Morahan reprises her five-star “performance of a lifetime” (Sunday Telegraph) as Nora Helmer, alongside the “excellent” (Daily Telegraph) Dominic Rowan, who returns as her husband Torvald.
Nora’s life seems perfect: beautiful children, elegant home and an adoring, successful husband. But beneath the surface her life is shot through with lies and deception. As events cause the truth to burst through the veneer, she’s shocked to discover how radically her life has to change and how strong her moral reserve needs to be.
One of the most controversial plays of the late 19th century, Ibsen’s masterpiece caused huge waves for its stringent and insightful critique of social and domestic relationships. Over one hundred years later his play still has power and resonance today
