Sport for Jove Theatre Company and the Seymour Centre present A Doll's House

Nora Helmer - heroic feminist, rabid neurotic, or just a selfish runaway? With the brisk pace and plotting of a thriller, Ibsen’s tale of intrigue, fraud and betrayal exposes a world where duty, power and hypocrisy rule.

PRLog - June 13, 2014 - SYDNEY, Australia -- Sport For Jove Theatre Company has welcomed the return of former Artistic Director of the State Theatre Co. of South Australia, Adam Cook, who will be adapting and directing the Henrik Ibsen classic play, A Doll's House, as part of the Seymour’s Reginald 2014 Season from 17 July to 2 August.

One of the masterpieces of nineteenth-century theatre, Cook’s adaptation will explore just how much or how little times have changed since the play first premiered to huge controversy in 1879 with its bold vision of feminist self-hood and rediscovery.

A Doll’s House features a strong line-up of Australian theatre talent including Matilda Ridgway, who recently performed to acclaim in Proof at Ensemble Theatre, as Nora; and an exceptional supporting cast including Doug Hansell, Barry French, Francesca Savige, Annie Byron and Anthony Gooley.

The story follows the Helmers who are all set to enjoy a new life in a new home. Torvald has been promoted to a senior position at the bank and Nora is delighted. At last, they can put their financial troubles behind them. But their fragile happiness is shattered by the arrival of an unexpected visitor. As the lies that Nora has told, and the risks that she has taken to protect her husband are exposed, they are forced to question just how perfect their marriage really is. Now, it seems, only a miracle will set them free.

Cook returns to the Sport for Jove Theatre Company where he previously directed the critically acclaimed hit Much Ado About Nothing as part of Sport For Jove's 2013/2014 outdoor summer festival season.
