A Doll's House extends 1 week to 4 Aug at Young Vic
A Doll's House has been extended by 1 week at the Young Vic Theatre to 4 Aug 2012.
The play by Henrik Ibsen, english language version by Simon Stephens, directed by Carrie Cracknell, featuring Hattie Morahan (Nora) and Dominic Rowan (Torvald), opened on 9 July 2012, following previews from 29 June, to good notices from the popular press: Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard says, "This is a sexy, passionate interpretation." Michael Billington for The Guardian says, "Carrie Cracknell's production certainly puts a new spin on Ibsen's 1879 classic. As if to remind us that this is a play about domestic revolution, Ian MacNeil's design revolves ceaselessly, showing us the different rooms in the Helmer household." Dominic Cavendish for The Daily Telegraph says "Warmly recommended." and Sarah Hemming for The Financial Times says, "Riveting production."
Nora's world seems ideal: beautiful children, elegant home, adoring husband. But her life is shot through with lies and delusion. When the truth bursts into the open, Nora is shocked to discover how radically her life has to change.
