A Doll's House, by the Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen, is the world's most performed play, recognised by UNESCO in 2001 on the Memory of the World Register. When it premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 21 December 1879, it was greeted with controversy for its criticism of 19th-century marriage norms. Ibsen, however, rejected the idea that he had made a play promoting women's rights, instead describing his work as 'the description of humanity'.
This production stars Hattie Morahan as Nora, alongside Dominic Rowan as Torvald in a reprise of the production by Simon Stephens (Punk Rock), director Carrie Cracknell (Elektra) and Tony Award winner Ian MacNeil (Billy Elliot), which received rapturous acclaim.
