Ibsen adaptation comes to Grantham's Guildhall Arts Centre

A Dolls’s House, a new adaptation by Theatrical Niche based on Henrik Ibsen’s classic tale is being staged at the Guildhall Arts Centre next Tuesday, June 12, at 7.30pm.

Mr and Mrs Helmer are the iconic power couple. They excel at work, staying on top and socialising. They excel at excelling.

But as his autobiography rolls out around Christmas-time, it seems there are a few things that Mr Helmer may not have mentioned in the foreword.

Exploring stigmas around gender expectations and mental health, this artful adaptation focuses on the impossible idolisation of one ‘perfect’ woman, by a man who walks with weights around his ankles.

Incorporating visually-stunning choreography and emotive, real-life verbatim interviews, this contemporary version will rocket Ibsen’s famous tale into a hugely relevant re-telling for modern audiences.

Along with some remarkable actors, this production of A Doll’s House truly fleshes out what was hiding in plain sight.

Suitable for ages 12+, free and bespoke workshops are available for school groups. Contact j.goswell@southkesteven.gov.uk

Tickets are priced at £12/£10 concessions/£8 students and under-26s.
