A re-imagining of the Ibsen classic A Doll’s House by Emily Perkins will be staged at Circa Theatre next month. This modern take on Ibsen’s nineteenth century play which provoked a storm of controversy by examining how marriage deprived women of their rights, drops the plot into present-day New Zealand. Director Katherine McRae was inspired to stage the play by the continued relevance of the domestic politics at the heart of Ibsen’s play. The team includes sound designer Pete Edge who returns to theatre after fifteen years.
