Tacoma Little Theatre begins 2019 with Henrik Ibsen’s classic “A Doll’s House” as part of its 100th anniversary season. This production is directed by Marilyn Bennett, with a new adaptation by Marilyn Bennett and Lydia Valentine.
A story so controversial in its time that party guests were asked not to discuss it for fear of starting a fight, and lauded by playwright George Bernard Shaw for challenging societal norms, Henrik Ibsen’s play features Nora Helmer: a woman in the role of a typical housewife, treated like a doll, harboring a secret debt for saving her husband’s life. Her debtor, now an employee to her husband, threatens to reveal her secret to her husband in order to save his own job. Nora finds herself faced with a difficult moral dilemma between the sacred values of her marriage and family versus her independence.
Tacoma Little Theatre’s production of “A Doll’s House” features: Annie Katica Green (Nora), Sean Neely (Torvald), Kristen Moriarty (Christine), Jason Sharp (Krogstad), Mark Peterson (Dr. Rank), Robin McGee (AnneMarie), Marleyne Hernandez (Helene), Patrick Gow (Ivar), Nigel Kelley (Bob) and Jean Littrell (Emmy).
“A Doll’s House” is recommended for ages 12 and up.
Tickets: $25 adults; $23 seniors (60+), students, military; and $20 children 12 and under. Tickets may be purchased online or by calling (253) 272-228.
