An update from the Young Vic:

“The health and wellbeing of our audiences and staff will always be our priority. On Saturday 14 March, both performances of Nora: A Doll’s House were cancelled as a precaution. We have since made the difficult decision to cancel all remaining performances of Nora. Although the performances are cancelled, the Young Vic building, box office and The Cut bar are set to remain open.

“We will do everything we can to support our ecosystem of artists, staff, partners and community, many of whom are freelance, during this unprecedented time. As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a substantial portion of our income, and the uncertainty ahead is a huge worry for those who work for and with us, as it is for the theatre sector as a whole. Therefore – if you can afford to – please consider donating the price of your ticket, or another amount however large or small, to the Young Vic, to help us get through this period.

“We apologise for any disappointment caused for those expecting to see the final performances of Nora this week. We would like to thank everyone in advance for their understanding, and please ask that you bear with our small but wonderful Welcome Team, as they process exchanges, credit notes or donations for ticket holders of the cancelled performances. If you are a ticket holder for the cancelled Nora performances, you will receive an email from the Young Vic Welcome Team within the next 48hrs with further information.”

 

Nora: A Doll’s House is Stef Smith’s striking new interpretation of Ibsen’s classic.

‘You’ve lies in the whites of your eyes, Nora. What have you done…?’

Nora is the perfect wife and mother. She is dutiful, beautiful and everything is always in its right place. But when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, her life rapidly unravels.

Over the course of three days, Nora must fight to protect herself and her family or risk losing everything.

Ibsen’s brutal portrayal of womanhood caused outrage when it was first performed in 1879.

This bold new production of Stef Smith’s acclaimed new play was originally produced at Citizens Theatre in Glasgow and reframes the drama in three different time periods.

The fight for women’s suffrage, the swinging sixties and modern day intertwine in this urgent, poetic play that asks how far have we really come in the past 100 years?
