The A Doll's House play is one of the greats of classic theatre and arguably Ibsen's best-known work. In 19th-century Norway, Nora Helmer seems to have the perfect life as a wife and mother. But she's keeping a secret from her husband that threatens to upend their marriage. As the truth gradually unravels, Nora begins to realize that, maybe, upending her life is the best possible thing. Outside her perfect "dollhouse," she might actually find fulfillment.
Immediately after Ibsen wrote and premiered the play in 1879, he was the subject of controversy for the way he challenged gender norms and the sacredness of marriage. He even had to write an less shocking alternate ending that's rarely used today. But since its premiere, A Doll's House has received countless adaptations and productions all over the world, with 13 on Broadway alone. The most recent was in 1997, starring Janet McTeer as Nora.
Ths 2023 A Doll's House Broadway revival was supposed to premiere in 2020 in London's West End, but Covid-19 canceled the production indefinitely. Now, it premieres in New York instead. This iteration features a new script by Amy Herzog, who's best known for her Pulitzer-nominated play 4000 Miles.
Directing is Jamie Lloyd, who runs an eponymous theatre company based in the U.K. His recent productions in New York include Betrayal, starring Tom Hiddleston, and Cyrano de Bergerac, starring James McAvoy. His A Doll's House production has earned six Tony Award nominations, including Best Revival of a Play.
