Why See A Doll's House?
Starring Jessica Chastain
Hollywood powerhouse Jessica Chastain makes her West End debut in a new version of the Henrik Ibsen classic, A Doll's House courtesy of the Jamie Lloyd Company residency at the Playhouse Theatre. Directed by Lloyd himself the 1800's masterpiece is slightly re-worked by Frank McGuinness. Known for her stunning performances in Molly's Game and Interstellar, Chastain will take on Nora, one of theatre's most prolific heroines, in this strictly limited run.
McGuinness' 1996 version of Ibsen's feminist drama is wildly considered to be one of the best adaptations of the playwright's masterpiece, and with Chastain at the forefront, this 2020 revival is set to be one of the most talked-about productions of the season!
What is A Doll's House about?

Mother to his three children Nora flits around their grand house like a prized toy, treated with gifts and fine food. However, when her financial dependency becomes increasingly more apparent Nora's opinions on the status quo begin to shift, throwing her marriage and family into disarray.
