A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen

8th to 10th December

Our Autumn production will be Ibsen’s iconic 1879 masterpiece, A Doll’s House, rightly dubbed the world’s first ever feminist play and as relevant today as it was nearly 150 years ago. Gender equality still stands among the biggest human rights battles yet to be fought and, shockingly, what’s now called ‘coercive control’ of young women by men remains a reality in 2022.

The heroine, Nora, is one of the great roles of world theatre and has been played over the decades by leading actresses from Jane Fonda and Claire Bloom to Juliet Stevenson. Wedmore Theatre is currently lucky in having a leading lady in Carrie Large who is capable of taking on this iconic role. With Alan Philps playing her controlling husband, Torvald, we have the basis of a winning team onstage.

We have now cast the play and rehearsals are starting. However, we still need to put together a large backstage team. If you are interested in getting involved, maybe in set-building, costumes, stage management or front-of-house please fill in our contact form or send an email to productions@wedmoretheatre.com We would love to hear from you and get you involved in this exciting production.
