Overview

Following two acclaimed, sell-out runs at the Young Vic, Carrie Cracknell’s electrifying revival of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House transfers to the Duke of York’s Theatre. Playing for twelve weeks only prior to a New York transfer, A Doll’s House has received rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. Adapted by Olivier Award-winning Simon Stephens, Ibsen’s timeless masterpiece remains as relevant today as it ever was.

First staged in Copenhagen in 1879, A Doll’s House has since been awarded the title of the world’s most performed play. Set in late 19th century Norway, Nora seems to have the perfect life: beautiful and clever children, a wonderful home and doting husband. But quickly, her life is shattered when a shocking truth comes to light and Nora must soon learn how radically her life must change.

Critic’s Circle and Evening Standard Award-winning actress Hattie Morahan (Outnumbered) reprises her five-star portrayal of as Norma Helmer, opposite Dominic Rowan (Law & Order: UK) as her husband Torvald. Additional cast members include Nick Fletcher as Nils Krogstad, Steve Toussaint as Doctor Rank, Carline Martin as Kristine Linde, Leda Hodgson as Anna and Yolanda Kettle as Helene.

Directed by Carrie Cracknell (Gate Theatre), A Doll’s House is a passionate, captivating version of Ibsen’s classic text, adapted by Simon Stephens from Charlotte Barslund’s literal translation. A Doll’s House features design by Ian MacNeill, lighting design by Guy Hoare, music by Stuart Earl, sound design by David McSeveney and choreography by Quinny Sacks. This exceptional revival plays for a strictly limited season at the Duke of York’s Theatre before transferring to New York.
