Sport For Jove Theatre Company and the Seymour Centre present as part of the Reginald Season 2014, the Henrik Ibsen classic play, A Doll's House; a tale of intrigue, fraud and betrayal that still has strong contemporary resonances for today’s audiences, exposing a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule.

Former Artistic Director of the State Theatre Co. of South Australia, Adam Cook, who will be adapting and directing this masterpiece of nineteenth-century theatre. His dynamic and visceral adaptation will explore just how much or how little times have changed since the play first premiered to huge controversy in 1879 with its bold vision of feminist self-hood and rediscovery.

A Doll’s House features a strong line-up of Australian theatre talent including Matilda Ridgway, who recently performed to acclaim in Proof at Ensemble Theatre, as Nora; and an exceptional supporting cast including Doug Hansell, Barry French, Francesca Savige, Annie Byron and Anthony Gooley.

The story follows the Helmers who are all set to enjoy a new life in a new home. Torvald has been promoted to a senior position at the bank and Nora is delighted. At last, they can put their financial troubles behind them. But their fragile happiness is shattered by the arrival of an unexpected visitor. As the lies that Nora has told, and the risks that she has taken to protect her husband are exposed, they are forced to question just how perfect their marriage really is. Now, it seems, only a miracle will set them free.

Hugely controversial when it was first performed in 1879, A Doll’s House has lost none of its power as a bold vision of feminist selfhood and rediscovery.
