20 April-28 May 2005. This play traces the story of Noras own awakening as she comes to look again at her life, her role as wife and mother, before deciding to leave following the revelation of a long-time family secret. Her leaving marks a departure not just from her home but also from her way of life as she decides to pursue the ambitions she has suppressed since getting married. The piece despite its 19th century origins is startlingly modern in its resonance and in terms of the content: the crisis of marriage and the identity of the woman, a process which continues to this day.
As such the play touches on all the problems of modern life - relationships, the hopes and fears of individuals. Tickets cost 30, 25, 20, 15, and 9.50 (Concession).
