A Doll’s House
“A Doll’s House”, the Play show runs through Saturday, August 17 at the Carollwood Player’s Club.
Henrik Ibsen’s play, “A Doll’s House,” premiered in Denmark in 1879 to a storm of outraged controversy. The play is relevant today for presenting the troubles of a marriage while questioning the established social order. Proper appearances and societal expectations mask the tragic reality of the true nature of the characters and the roles they play.
Carollwood Players Club production of “A Doll’s House” uses the English translation created by William Archer. This translation was first performed at the Novelty Theatre in London on Friday, June 7, 1889, making this translation over 130 years old.
Catch one of the final shows of “A Doll House” preformed by the Carrollwood Players’ latest production, Henrik Ibsen’s classic tale of a submissive wife finding her voice while married to a controlling husband.
This epochal drama of marriage and the individual portrays a controlling husband, and his wife, a submissive young woman who, when their idealized home life collapses, comes to the realization that she must finally close the door on her husband, children, and life in “a doll’s house” in order to find and live as her true self.
Presented with the support of the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners.
