A Doll's House by Emily Perkins (New Zealand)
1 Jan 2018 - 31 Dec 2019
“Heartbreaking and terrifying to witness.” Celebrated novelist Emily Perkins reimagines Ibsen’s 19th century classic and drops it into present-day New Zealand. Sophie Hambleton (TV’s Westside) gives a searing performance as Nora. Directed by award-winning television and theatre director Katherine McRae (Shortland Street, Go Girls, An Enemy of the People), this is a story with women at the centre. It's been described as “a perfectly honed piece of theatre” with “a stunningly powerful ending.”
The tour offering includes optional school workshops, after-show forums and meet-the-star opportunities. Two local children are cast and rehearsed in advance of the tour, offering the opportunity to generate heart-warming advance publicity and early ticket sales.
