Not your mom's doll's house....
In 1879, Ibsen premiered a ground breaking play that quickly became know for "The door slam heard round the world". The Justice Theater Project's team has adapted the show and created an entirely new script that is a modern, multicultural, celebrity inspired, selfie-taking, instagram posting, live-tweeting version of one of the most celebrated classics of female-centric theatre. The then shocking, now progressive final moments will be based on circumstances that will shock and delight today's audiences, especially the young and tech savvy.
Nora is still a woman accustomed to men creating her life for her. As her husband Torvald’s personal dealings become the center of potential blackmail, Nora identifies (and articulates) how trapped she has felt her entire life, and leaves her husband and children. Who really holds the power in this relationship?
Adapted by JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell, Aurelia Belfield, Katie Barrett, and members of The Justice Theater Project. The production will be partially video taped, and will include relevant modern cultural references.
