Durham-based Elysium Theatre Company brings Ibsen’s landmark play about marriage, love and the need to be true to who you are to the stage in a sensational new production.

“No man can be expected to sacrifice his honour, even for the person he loves.”

“Millions of women have done it.”

Nora is a happily married woman with a loving husband and three beautiful children. Everything seems perfect in her happy home, but when a man from her past appears demanding what she owes him, her ‘happy’ life unravels and she is forced to make a choice.

Ibsen was the first to write tragedy on the scale of Shakespeare, to do so in prose and to set it in a contemporary, naturalistic setting. Any drama we see on television, film or stage which is set in a world as real as our own, where characters move and speak can be attributed to his work in the 19th Century and it all started with A Doll’s House.

Elysium Theatre Company is an award-winning, independent theatre company based in Durham which has produced six highly acclaimed productions so far including northern premiers of plays by Jez Butterworth, Stephen Adly Guirgis, Owen MacCafferty and Athol Fugard, and revivals of modern classics by August Strindberg and Samuel Beckett. Their Northumberland-set adaptation of ‘Miss Julie’ won Best Revival in the North East, in the British Theatre Guide 2019.
