3rd-13th June, 7:45 pm
Nora and Torvald have all they could possibly want â€“ a wonderful home, beautiful children, and now Torvaldâ€™s promotion.
But their seemingly comfortable life is threatened by Noraâ€™s secret, and the man who keeps it. Now, the things she once did to save her husband might destroy them both.
Featuring Ibsenâ€™s rarely-seen alternate ending and performed by a diverse cast, Dissolve Theatre presents their take on this enduring exploration of duty, independence and identity. As the cracks in Noraâ€™s life start to show, her illusions are stripped away to leave only the question: what, if anything, actually binds us to the people in our lives?
The 12th June performance will be captioned by Stagetext, providing subtitles for audience membersÂ who are deaf, deafened or hard of hearing.
The 10th June performance and the 13th June matinee will be relaxed performances.
Relaxed performances welcome those who benefit from (or simply prefer!) a more relaxed performance environment. There is a relaxed attitude towards sound and movement from the audience, with people allowed to make noise and move freely, and some small changes will be made to the lighting and sound effects.
If you have any questions about the relaxed or captioned performances, do contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org.
