A Doll's House by Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell and Aurelia Belfield
October 12 - 28, 2018.
JTP Main Stage Season Opener: A DOLL'S HOUSEby Henrik Ibsen. Directed by JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell. Location: Umstead Park UCC, Raleigh.
Not your mom's doll's house....
The door slam heard round the world. A modern, multicultural, celebrity inspired, selfie-taking, instagram posting, live-tweeting version of one of the most celebrated classics of female-centric theatre with its then shocking, now progressive final moments.
Nora is a woman accustomed to men creating her life for her. As accusations about Torvald’s shady, 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. Unawares of what lies ahead but carrying a stronger sense of self into it.
Adapted by JaMeeka Holloway-Burrell, Jackson Cooper, Aurelia Belfield, and members of The Justice Theater Project. The production will be partially video taped, and will include relevant modern cultural references.
