“A Doll’s House” at Johnson Theatre, Oct. 10-14
"If Ibsen was a revolutionary playwright, if he wanted to change the way
people think, why did he create a character that so many audiences hate?"
This excellent question was asked by a UNH theatre and dance major during
the rehearsal of “A Doll’s House,” which runs Oct. 10-14
at the Johnson Theatre.
Highly controversial when first performed, Ibsen’s groundbreaking
drama opens with Nora Helmer twittering and posing like a pretty skylark
for her domineering husband. Is she being a frivolous woman, acting a requisite
role--or is she doing a bit of both? For nearly one and a half centuries,
Nora’s ultimate rejection of the accepted constraints of marriage
has surprised and dismayed audiences. Who is Nora Helmer, and what do we
see in her that makes us so uncomfortable?
“A Doll’s House’ is directed by professor David Richman
who teaches courses in the interpretation of Shakespeare, play reading,
American theatre, and the history, theory and criticism of theatre. Richman
is a winner of the Lindberg Award, given to the outstanding teacher-scholar
in the College of Liberal Arts.
He has directed UNH students in more than 30 plays by Shakespeare, Ibsen,
Beckett and other classical and modern dramatists, and has authored books
about Shakespearean comedies and W.B. Yeats' plays, as well as an assortment
of articles on Shakespeare and other playwrights.
For tickets, contact the MUB ticket office, Monday through Friday, between
10 a.m. and 4 p.m.; call2-2290 or email www.unhmub.com/ticket. Tickets
are $12.50 for general admission and $10.50 for seniors, UNH ID holders;
and groups of 15 or more. The UNH Theatre Box Office opens one hour prior
to curtain in the lobby at the Paul Creative Arts Center. For more information,
and show times, call the theatre and dance office at 2-2919, or visit www.unh.edu/theatre-dance.
