By Henrik Ibsen. A new adaptation by Bryony Lavery

Nora
, a young wife and mother is married to Torvald, a recently promoted bank manager. Life seems content and settled until their marriage is threatened when a terrible secret from Nora’s past comes back to haunt her and she begins to question their world.

Henrik Ibsen’s ground-breaking play is widely regarded as a landmark of the modern stage. A story of domestic revolution, female empowerment and the journey towards self-liberation, it queries aspirations, success and what it means to raise a happy family. The play is still as charged, intense and provocative as it was 130 years ago.

A DOLL’S HOUSE stars Cush Jumbo as Nora. She is reunited with director Greg Hersov following the hugely successful
PYGMALION (2010) and AS YOU LIKE IT (2011), for which Cush won the 2011 Ian Charleson Award.

‘Working in a space where nothing can be hidden gives you enormous power and an enormous responsibility to an audience, that’s scary but exhilarating. If you can play the Royal Exchange you can play ANYWHERE.’ Cush Jumbo, Actress
