A Doll's House
by Henrik Ibsen
adapted by Sandra Delgado and Michael Halberstam
Produced by Writers Theatre
Opened October 2019 in the Gillian Theatre
An intimately staged, streamlined (95 minute) new adaptation of Ibsen’s classic, protofeminist play.
Chicago Tribune: “The scene work really is resplendent, and Jadhwani has forged an array of fascinating conversations… I also admired Jadhwani’s ending, which I won’t spoil here, but that conveys one of the play’s major overlooked lessons.”
Daily Herald: “The self-emancipation of the titular doll packs a wallop, especially in director Lavina Jadhwani’s canny, confident premiere.”
Chicago Theatre Review: “Lavina Jadhwani’s direction is smart and dynamic, always keeping this story in motion.”
featuring Cher Alvarez, Greg Matthew Anderson, Amy J. Carle, Tiffany Renee Johnson, Adam Poss, and Bradley Grant Smith.
