A Doll's House archiveFirst 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.

Tanika Gupta transposes the setting of Ibsen's classic play to India in 1879 where 'Nora'., now Niru, is an Indian woman married to 'Torvald', now Tom, an Englishman working for the British Colonial Administration in Calcutta. Niru risks her own reputation in order to save her husband's and in the process discovers herself. This new version of A Doll's House takes a fresh look at the play, shining a light on British colonial history and race relations as well as gender politics and class, enabling an analysis of different forms of subjugation and servitude.Adapted by Tanika Gupta.
