Our Review 4 / 5

Calcutta. 1879.

Niru, is a young Bengali woman in a mixed-race marriage with an English colonial bureaucrat – Tom.

Tom loves Niru, exoticising her as a frivolous plaything to be admired and kept. But Niru has a long-kept secret. And just as she thinks she is almost free of it, it threatens to bring her life crashing down around her.

Tanika Gupta reimagines Ibsen’s classic play of gender politics through the lens of British colonialism, offering a bold, female perspective exploring themes of ownership and race.

There will be a post-show question and answer session on 17th September and 24th September.

By:
Henrik Ibsen
Director:
Rachel O'Riordan
