Set in 1950s America with a Mad Men flair, The Classic Theatre’s production of A Doll’s House, written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879, is the “modern tragedy” that changed theatre forever. It opened the door to realism. So explosive was the message, that a marriage was not sacrosanct, that a man’s authority in his home should not go unchallenged, and that the prime duty of anyone was to find out who he or she really is and to become that person, that the play shocked audiences then and still resonates with them today.

Sometimes the perfectly presented family and home are not what they seem … sometimes finding your home means finding yourself first.
