London's West End theatres will remain closed until the end of June due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, many of these venues have now begun live streaming pre-recorded performances to their loyal audiences from around the world. This coming Wednesday, the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre will stream Tanika Gupta's adaptaion of Henrik Ibsen's realist classic A Doll's House. Filmed at the Lyric in 2019, this production pays homage to the original text, while giving it new relevance for 21st Century audiences.
This new take on Ibsen's classic text explores gender politics, ownership and race in 1879, Calcutta. The role of Niru – Nora in the original – was played by Anjana Vasan (Rutherford and Son/ Summer and Smoke) who was nominated for Best Actress at the Evening Standard Awards for the role.
A Doll's House will be available on the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre's YouTube channel for one day only, so don't miss it!
Wednesday, 20 May 2020 at 14:30 - 00:00.
