A Doll's House

Front Cover
Oberon Books Limited, 2004 - Drama - 123 pages
Nora is everything a man could desire: a loving, loyal wife and wonderful mother. Her husband has just landed a job finally giving the family financial security. Nora couldn't be happier.
Yet, as characters from the past enter the cheerful family home, cracks gradually appear on its facade. And as the brutal outside world finally bears down, an intense struggle develops between a desperate husband and his once-innocent wife.
Bryony Lavery's new adaptation of one of Ibsen's finest plays blows away the cobwebs of history and the play emerges as a thoroughly modern and edgy thriller for our times.
