Nora Helmer, her husband’s ‘little songbird’, has got a lot of plates spinning. Kids, the house, a secret debt, a terminally ill best friend and the slow, creeping awareness that she’s been conned into taking up residence in a gilded cage.

As the hours to Christmas Day tick down, her life is further complicated by the arrival of a high school acquaintance, Kristine Linde, who brings further chaos through the door with her. Underneath it all is Nora’s snowballing realization that the only way forward may be to crash or crash through.

Ibsen’s greatest play has bewitched and divided audiences for more than 100 years bringing energy, schism and heartbreak to the issue of gender inequality.

Performances are at 8pm on March 22, 23, 24 and at 2pm on March 25.
