A Dolls House Explores The Meaning Of Sacrifice

[Ibsen’s A Doll’s House begins as Infamous Commonwealth Theater begins its season long exploration of the meaning of “sacrifice.”  It’s a curious coincidence that while ICT brings Ibsen to the 1960s American feminist movement, Steppenwolf’s Garage Theater will showcase robots cavorting across the stage portraying Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler.  ICT’s second play exploring the meaning of sacrifice will be Lanford Wilson’s Vietnam war saga, The Fifth of July.]

 

A DOLL’S HOUSE

By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Christopher Hampton
Directed by Chris Maher

Featuring Josh Atkins, Kate Cares, Stephen Dunn, Barbara Roeder Harris, Amanda Roeder, Mark Shallow and Genevieve Thompson

SAC-RI-FICE (noun): destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else.

New York City, 1962. As America hovers on the cusp of a second-wave feminist movement whose effects are felt to this day, Nora Helmer is a woman lost. Her entire life, Nora has defined herself by what she is to others-daughter, mother, wife, friend. Now she lives in a beautiful home with a husband and children who adore her, yet often feel like strangers. But after a dark secret from the past comes back to haunt her, Nora is finally forced to face the underlying realities of her carefully constructed existence.
