“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.

Only A Test: ER Drills To Take Place

Effective emergency preparedness and response requires the participation of the entire campus community. With this in mind, the university and the Durham Fire Department will be holding emergency evacuation drills, lasting three-to-five minutes, in academic and administrative buildings during the months of September and October. Evacuation drills allow building occupants to become familiar with drill procedures, the locations of exits, and the sound of the fire alarm.

Faculty and staff can prepare for the drills by reviewing emergency preparedness and emergency procedures information available on the web:
Emergency Evacuation Drill Brochure
Emergency Preparedness Program Brochure
The Emergency Preparedness website

Disruptions can be minimized by ensuring students and staff members are aware of the nearest exit to their classroom, work area, or lab and the designated area of assembly outside. Faculty members are encouraged to point out evacuation routes and areas of assembly to each class at the beginning of every semester. Emergency evacuation maps have been posted in the hallways of most campus buildings for reference on evacuation routes and areas of assembly.
