A Doll’s House

by Henrik Ibsen

Adapted and directed by Craig Johnson

Set in a Norwegian town towards the end of the 19th century, this theatrical phenomenon by Henrik Ibsen follows the fate of Nora Helmer, a married woman with limited opportunities for self fulfillment in a male dominated society. It explores the relevant themes of identity, femininity, marriage, parenthood, and selfishness. We're thrilled to be presenting this somewhat twisted, yet funny and poignant drama this coming holiday season.
