Feminist classic comes to Alnwick

A groundbreaking feminist classic is coming to Alnwick Playhouse later this year.

As part of its world premiere, UK Touring Theatre will present a new English version of A Doll’s House, Henrik Ibsen’s play about marriage, money and the freedom of women in the late 19th century.

Set in Norway, A Doll’s House explores the relationship of Torvald and Nora Helmer, whose ‘perfect’ marriage is not what it seems.

The play shocked and divided critics across Europe with its depiction of a woman struggling to survive in a man’s world, and Nora’s rejection of the ‘ideal’ family life.

It will be performed on stage at the Playhouse on Tuesday, October 7. Tickets are £13 premier, £12 standard, £10 concession.
