Offering a fresh perspective on Ibsen’s timeless classic, Schultz’s 90-minute adaptation of A Doll’s House invites audiences to engage with updated themes of gender, power, and identity while holding true to the playwright’s original intentions.
The play follows the story of Nora, a young wife and mother, who appears to have a perfect life with her husband Torvald. However, Nora has been keeping a secret from her husband that threatens to unravel her entire world. When we lose ourselves to the expectations of the roles we fulfill, how long before we must slam the door to find ourselves again?
