TNB’s inaugural Next Stage season began with A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen. A new adaptation by Duncan McIntosh, and co-produced with The Montgomery Theatre, it was our first modern classic in nearly two decades. Nora loves her husband above all else. But when she risks her reputation in order to save his, she begins to question her devotion and finds herself fighting for her own life.
As Artistic Producer Caleb Marshall notes, Fredericton has always seemed an ideal location to stage a piece like A Doll’s House. “As a small loyalist-founded capitol city that retains much of its Victorian flavour, Fredericton is a perfect setting for many of the great plays that emerged in the late nineteenth century.”
A Doll’s House ran September 14-18, 2011 at The Black Box Theatre, St. Thomas University.
“I have seen productions of this play for 40 years and this is the first one I understand. It’s wonderful.” Don Harron, actor, director and lyricist for Anne of Green Gables – The Musical
“Fantastic not-to-be-missed performance by everyone.” Margaret Gladstone for onrpei.com
“The story gripped me and would not let go.… (it) showed off performance nuances that gradually but mightily suck you into the lives of these characters.” Linda Lowther in The Guardian
