First performed in Copenhagen in 1879. Christmas Eve. Excitement and love filled the Helmer's apartment. Nora is her husband's cherished 'songbird' and the romance of their marriage has been played out over the years. But beneath the carefree surface of their lives, the secret of how Nora saved her husband's life begins to emerge. Tension increases as the characters react against one another and this taut and gripping drama ends as Nora demands her right to individual freedom. One of the great landmark plays of the nineteenth century. Shared Experience are renowned the world over for breaking boundaries and creating highly charged physical performances. In this new production, the company bring their expressionistic approach to Ibsen's classic drama to reveal this dark and brilliant play in all its nakedness. We see Ibsen's classic as never before - through the eyes of its heroine. It is Christmas Eve. Nora wraps presents, decorates the tree and plays with her beloved children. But is this idyll a paradise or a prison? Nora must charm, delight and seduce if she is to survive. But every time the doorbell rings the outside world threatens to destroy her fragile happiness.Performers Paterson Joseph, Jude Akuwudike, Pip Donaghy, Anne-Marie Duff, Eileen O'Brien, Francesca Ryan.
