A Doll’s House: Still relevant – Even more brilliant

Following two sold out runs at Young Vic, Henrik Ibsen's timeless masterpiece ‘A Doll’s House’ is transferred to The Duke of York's Theatre on West End for twelve weeks only. Hattie Morahan is back in the role as Nora with marvelous critiques.

Nora’s world seems ideal: beautiful children, elegant home, adoring husband. But her life is shot through with lies and delusion. When the truth bursts into the open, Nora is shocked to discover how radically her life has to change.

Ibsen, one of the world's few genius playwrights, was a pathbreaking and fearless analyst of human relationships. 'A Doll’s House', the second in his series of 12 prose masterpieces (following 'Brand' and 'Peer Gynt', both written in verse) premiered in 1879 in Copenhagen.  The controversy that erupted has never died down: is it an attack on marriage?  Is it proto-feminist?  Is its defence of the individual compatible with social order?  And if it is not, then how are people to live?  The prototype of the 'well-made play', 'A Doll's House' is always a thrilling moral explosion - as much so today as when it was first seen 120 years ago.
