A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen

adh-ctc2015-web2directed by John Johnston

Classical Theatre Company returns to the father of modern drama, Henrik Ibsen, for the first time since producing their critically-acclaimed production of Ghosts in 2010. This stirring drama was highly controversial when it was orginailly produced in 1879, as it brought to light the status that women held not only in Victorian Norway, but also teh Victorian West as a whole. The plight of women in their struggle for equality continues to this very day, some 130 years after Nora raised the hackleds of her Norwegian audiences with her enlightenment. “The fact that women in this country still don’t have equal rights is astonishing to me, “says director John Johnston. “In the workplace as well as in the home, many women are treated as second-class citizens. They are undermined, underpaid, and many of them are overworked. We only need to look at the quotes from our politicians to know that this is an issue that still needs to be addressed.”
