Nora: A Doll’s House
THIS PRODUCTION TAKES PLACE AT TRAMWAY (25 ALBERT DRIVE, G41 2PE)
‘You’ve lies in the whites of your eyes, Nora. What have you done…?’
Nora is the perfect wife and mother. She is dutiful, beautiful and everything is always in its right place. But when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, her life rapidly unravels. Over the course of three days, Nora must fight to protect herself and her family or risk losing everything.
Ibsen’s brutal portrayal of womanhood caused outrage when it was first performed in 1879. This bold new production by one of Scotland’s most exciting playwrights reframes the drama in three different time periods. The fight for women’s suffrage, the swinging sixties and modern day intertwine in this urgent, poetic play that asks how far have we really come in the past 100 years?

"I truly love the play and I didn't want to tinker with it. It had to be a version as radical as I could make it, as radical, in its own way, as the play itself."
"A radical new version of Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House opens a season of plays by women writers in Glasgow next month"
