A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen, in a new adaptation by Samuel Adamson, is to play the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre this April.
It is Christmas in the Helmer household and Nora and her husband Torvald are celebrating the season with their two children. When Nora receives an unexpected and unwelcome visit the idyllic family home is shattered. Over ‘three long days’ secrets and lies are revealed creating a chasm of such magnitude that things can never be the same again.
A Doll’s House is the most performed play in the world. It continues to fascinate actors, directors and theatre goers who are drawn to the story of Nora Helmer, ‘the little sky lark’, whose emotional roller coaster of a journey is starkly displayed as the walls of ‘the doll’s house’ begin to crumble and the foundations collapse. Losing none of Ibsen’s spellbinding plot, Samuel Adamson’s taut, accessible script resonates strongly with modern audiences, clearly illustrating the perennial tensions that challenge our relationships.
A Doll’s House is at Brockley Jack Studio Theatre from Tuesday 22nd April to Saturday 3rd May 2014. Tickets are on sale now at £14, £11 concessions. Book online at www.brockleyjack.co.uk or contact the box office on 0844 8700 887.
