Nora: A Doll’s House – a radical new version by Stef Smith, after Henrik Ibsen
Presented by Union House Theatre
Directed by UHT’s Artistic Director Xanthe Beesley and Liv Satchell.
Get creative and make lifelong friends whilst being part of this fantastic production.
Nora is the perfect wife and mother. She is dutiful, beautiful and everything is always in its right place. But when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, her life rapidly unravels. Over the course of three days, Nora must fight to protect herself and her family or risk losing everything.
Henrik Ibsen’s brutal portrayal of womanhood caused outrage when it was first performed in 1879. This bold new version reframes the drama in three different time periods. The fight for women’s suffrage, the Swinging Sixties and the modern-day intertwine in this urgent, poetic play that asks ‘how far have we really come in the past hundred years?’
Xanthe Beesley and Liv Satchell co-direct this new adaptation in a brave and innovative way, using lots of movement and contemporary theatre processes to create a large ensemble-based work. After a week-long intensive, rehearsals are part-time (including Saturdays and evenings) in the lead up to a busy production week and performances. The production will be cast from those who participate in the intensive.
This is an exciting and much-awaited chance to get involved in theatre on campus, try something new, discover different ways of creating theatre and meet a great community of like-minded friends.
