The Chamber Theatre presents A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen.
When Nora returned with the trappings of Christmas, did she anticipate that the trappings of her identity as a wife and as a mother could come down before the decorations would? Did she believe that her performance as dutiful wife and diligent mother was enough, for her and her husband? Did she expect to have to choose between her happy veneer, and the uncertainty of the truth…
A true classic of world literature, A Doll’s House, by Henrik Ibsen, explores and explodes gender roles, societal expectation, and relationships based on ideals rather than honesty. Scandalous when first written, A Doll’s House has consistently proven its relevance right up to the present day.

Monday March 20th — post show event: After we perform the play, we will re-stage the last few minutes of the play with Ibsen's controversial alternative ending, composed for a censorious German production that refused to end on such a bleak note. This will be followed by a discussion about the play, and the «happy» ending.
Thursday March 23rd — post show event: The Trial of Nora — Nora is put on trial to determine whether or not she is guilty, with the attendees serving as jury!
