A Doll's House: A New Version by Frank McGuinness Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Nora Helmer, wife to Torvald and mother of three children, appears to enjoy living the life of a pampered, indulged child. But as her economic dependence becomes brutally clear, Nora's acceptance of the status quo undergoes a profound change. To the horror of the bewildered Torvald, himself caught in the tight web of a conservative society which demands that he exert strict control, Nora comes to see that only possible true course of action is to leave the family home.

Frank McGuinness's version of A Doll's House received its London premiere in October 1996 and opened on Broadway in 1997, where the production won four Tony Awards.

Synopsis:

The text of Ibsen's play, written in 1879 and translated into English by the playwright, Frank McGuinness. Nora confronts her husband, Torvald, with her own brutal realization that by marrying she has moved from her father's doll's house into yet another situation of economic dependency.

Synopsis:

Ibsen's classic play was greeted with shock on its first production in 1879, with both its style and subject matter being seen as radical and subversive.
