“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 ideal life unravels, and as she realises the truth about her marriage, she is forced to make the ultimate choice…

Award-winning, Durham-based Elysium Theatre Company returns to the Assembly Rooms Theatre where it all began with Days Of Wine And Roses in 2017. We are proud to be back in our home town with our new production of Ibsen's landmark play. With Hannah Ellis Ryan (Coronation St, The River, Hello And Goodbye) as Nora, A Doll’s House follows our acclaimed production of Miss Julie, which won Best Revival In The North East in the British Theatre Guide in 2019.

Don’t miss this thrilling play!

This is a Live Performance staged in the Assembly Rooms Theatre
