The reviews are out and A Doll’s House is a must see!
“…A Doll’s House premiered in 1879, the year Edison first ignited a light bulb, the year Einstein was born. If you think of all the ways the world has changed since that time, it’s amazing that a work of art could persist and remain so popular in our vastly different society. What could a play of this vintage teach us today? Plenty, as it turns out.”

“The risk Nora takes at the end of the play — a watershed moment on how women were portrayed on stage — shocked a patriarchal society who expected the stage to reinforce their standards. Fast forward to 2018 and the power of #MeToo and #TimesUp, and Nora’s heartbreakingly courageous decision reflects an understanding that sexual harassment comes in various guises and that there is still a lot to be done to galvanize gender equality.”
“‘It’s really the story of the unraveling of a marriage,’ said director Caroline Reddick Lawson. ‘It starts out with what seems to be a doll house perfect marriage. Two attractive young people married to each other. They have thee beautiful children. He’s just gotten a promotion to be a bank manager. Everything is happy. It’s Christmas Eve day. But then we start to see the cracks and the plot thickens. There’s everything from secrets that are revealed, blackmail, old friends who arise out of the blue.’”
