A Doll's House
Gannon University's Schuster Theatre – A DOLL'S HOUSE by Henrik Ibsen, adapted by Frank McGuinness (Dramatists) - Directed by Alaina Manchester (From the Dramatists Publishing Company website) Nora Helmer is a vibrant young housewife who nonetheless suffers from a crippling dependency on her husband of eight years. He, Torvald, has always done the thinking for the both of them. In order to save Torvald from a debt, and to spare his masculine pride, Nora arranges a loan without his knowledge, and does so by forging a signature. The inevitable revelation of the crime results in an unexpected reaction from Torvald: rather than being grateful to Nora, he is incapable of accepting the pride and self-sufficiency she demonstrated in taking care of him, and he accuses her of damaging his good name. The illusions behind their marriage are exposed, and Nora wakes to feelings of self-awareness for the first time in her life. Torvald is not the man she thought she knew. They are husband and wife, yes, but they are strangers as well. And in one of the most famous, and scandalous, climaxes in all of nineteenth-century drama, Nora leaves her husband and children, determined to forge a new identity from the one she has always known. Winner of the 1997 Tony Award for Best Revival. "New, raw, gut-twisting and gripping. Easily the hottest drama this season." - USA Today "Bold, brilliant and alive." - Wall Street Journal "A thunderclap of an evening that takes your breath away." - Time Magazine "The stuff of Broadway legend." - Associated Press Schuster Performances: Nov 30 - Dec 2 at 8pm Dec 3 at 2pm Dec 7-9 at 8pm Admission is $7 for General Admission, or $5 for Gannon faculty, staff, and students. Reservations can be made online at www.gannon.edu/schustertheatre.
