In a time of financial desperation, a young wife makes a dangerous decision, taking an illegal risk to save her husband's life. Years later, her secret comes back to haunt her, and its revelation will shake the foundations of her entire world. Written in 1879, Ibsen's A Doll's House is a true landmark of modern drama. Director Kirsten Brandt and Ibsen translator Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey collaborate to create a new adaptation of the play expressly for the Globe's intimate Sheryl and Harvey White Theatre. A Doll's House continues the Globe's Classics Up Close series, which takes dramatic masterworks out from behind the proscenium arch, allowing audiences to experience great drama in new and often unexpected ways.
