A Doll’s House

Date: 20 May 2020

Calcutta. 1879.

Niru is a young Bengali woman married to an English colonial bureaucrat – Tom.

Tom loves Niru, exoticising her as a frivolous plaything to be admired and kept. But Niru has a long-kept secret. And just as she thinks she is almost free of it, it threatens to bring her life crashing down around her.

Tanika Gupta reimagines Ibsen’s classic play of gender politics through the lens of British colonialism, offering a bold, female perspective exploring themes of ownership and race.

This Lyric Hammersmith production is available to view for 24 hours from 12.30am Thursday May 21, AEST.
