Nora: A Doll’s House
Written by Stef Smith
Photography by Chelsey Cliff
‘I see now our home has been nothing but a playroom. I am a doll-wife.’
1918. 1968. 2018. Three eras. Three women. Three fights for freedom.
The same struggle.
As outsiders looking in, we see a woman holding together a home. But when a secret from the past threatens to dismantle Nora’s carefully constructed world, she is forced to make a choice.
Henrik Ibsen’s brutal portrayal of womanhood in A Doll’s House caused riots when first performed in 1879. This bold new version by Stef Smith reframes the drama across three different time periods.
What does it mean to be a woman, a wife, a mother?
How do you escape a structure designed to lock you in?
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
