literature at lunch: Henrik Ibsen's 'The Doll's house'

Tell a friend:

28th March 2017 - 12 pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

It is hard today to appreciate the shock that swept through British theatre when Ibsen’s play was first performed in London in the 1880s. To have a character dying of venereal disease and a wife walking out on her respectable but controlling  husband, slamming the door...well!!! Too much for the Victorians, but perhaps really refreshing for our theatre.
