Second Age Theatre Company’s presentation of A Doll’s House.

I was delighted to have been involved in Second Age Theatre Company’s presentation of A Doll’s House. The production opened in The Everyman Theatre in Cork, a wonderful old building full of character; it then embarked on an Irish tour before ending in The Helix at DCU.

Much of the drama centres around one of the greatest fictional characters ever written, Nora Helmer. Nora (Lisa Lambe) is a respectable married mother with a comfortable lifestyle. But once the veneer of domesticity begins to unravel she is forced on an unavoidable journey of self-discovery. She confronts truths that shake the foundations of her existence with far reaching consequences for both herself and those around her.
When first performed the play provoked mass controversy and theatre walkouts. Often referred to as the first true feminist play, it still poses relevant questions about the roles we play, and conventions we allow ourselves to conform to.

Directed by Alan Stanford, Produced by Linda Keating, Set Design by Sabine Dargent, Costume Design by Leonore McDonagh, Lighting Design by Sinéad McKenna, Sound Design by Denis Clohessy, Choreography by Ella Clarke, Set Build by Tom Dowling.
