Danú presents An Adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, set in Middle East and performed in English .
A Doll's House is one of the most widely performed and popular plays ever written; a classic, found on nearly every school and university curriculum and translated into every major language. A Doll's House portrays the tragic hypocrisy of a middle class marriage while richly displaying the genius with which Henrik Ibsen pioneered modern, realistic prose drama. Ibsen himself referred to the play as "humanist." In the central character of Nora, Ibsen epitomized the human struggle against the humiliating constraints of social conformity. Danú are presenting an adapted version of the play in English set in The Middle East, using Arab actors.
