On the face of it Nora’s marriage to Torvald Helmer is idyllic and life is looking good as Torvald has recently been promoted to Bank Manager. Nora clearly loves her husband and, whilst Torvald expresses deep love for his wife, it is also clear that he regards her as an empty-headed plaything. She is his Trophy wife, his doll-wife.
Set in 1879, A Doll’s House defines the typical patriarchal society of that time which the play startlingly turns on its head as all the characters reveal their own complexities.
Presented by WTW and directed by Joy Haynes the play will be performed at the The Woodclyffe Hall 24th -27th October and tickets will be on sale from September 9th.
