Nora loves her husband above everything. But when she risks her reputation in order to save him, the consequences force her to examine her devotion, and she finds herself struggling for her own life.
Ibsen’s ground-breaking play created a huge sensation at its premiere in 1879 and is as fresh and pertinent as ever, with an unfading capacity to shock.
Extra play added after selected performances
LTC’s Assistant Director, Elisa Amesbury has adapted Getting Married, by August Strindberg, to be performed at The Lowry 9, 10 and 11 March at 10.15pm following each evening’s performance of A Doll’s House.
Strindberg originally wrote the short story Getting Married as a witty riposte to A Doll’s House in 1884 and this new adaptation is a charming and fascinating insight into what Ibsen’s arch-rival really thought of his masterpiece…
William and Rose are deeply in love and happily married, until, of course, a new friend gives Rose a copy of A Doll’s House to read. Heartache ensues as Rose realises in retrospect that her marriage has been far from perfect. Will this pair ever find their way back to married bliss?
Admission to Getting Married is free to ticket holders of A Doll’s House. Those attending on the performance of A Dolls House immediately preceding Getting Married are guaranteed a place. Those attending other performances who wish to come back and see Getting Married should enquire with The Lowry box office on 0843 208 6010.
