By Henrik Ibsen In a version by Simon Stephens Directed by Keira Fromm
Nora’s world is sheltered beneath a shiny bell jar, with plenty of satin and little substance. And yet, there are hints of something darker just beneath her carefree veneer. It seems this little lark may have some skeletons in her nest, and those bones don’t rest easy. So what begins as a family drama quickly reveals itself to be a life-or-death thriller, exquisite in its portrayal of humanity’s more complex and messy bits, and offering no clear villains. Or escape routes. Nora’s story is one for the ages — shocking for its time, and offering a cliffhanger that still haunts our collective psyche after all these years.
