Wife

Nora slammed the door on a broken, obsolete system for us, and now a hundred years later we have this free, independent union that’s not answerable to the interventions of the state and thrives irrespective of it.

1959. 1988. 2019. 2042. Four couples intersect with a production of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.

When it comes to identity, gender and unrequited love, how do societal expectations and pressures change over time?

Samuel Adamson (The Light Princess, National Theatre, Gabriel, Shakespeare’s Globe) maps a constellation of four queer stories within four generations in one family. The world premiere of this captivating study of sexuality across the ages is directed by Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham.
