WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA (Dress Rehearsal – November 9, 2022) – Purdue Theatre’s production of Stef Smith’s Nora: A Doll’s House directed by Ann M. Shanahan is an amazing retelling of Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 play, A Doll’s House, performed by an extraordinary cast on the grand stage at the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre in West Lafayette, Indiana. The show will open November 11 at the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre in Yue-Kong Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts, and follow with multiple digital & In-person performances through November 20, 2022. The following excerpt is courtesy of Purdue Theatre’s official website:

“Nora hopes to be a perfect mother and wife, living in domestic bliss. However, when a secret from her past surfaces, her life begins to unravel. Set over three days in three different time periods, Nora must do what is best to protect herself and her family. Based on Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 play, A Doll’s House, this modern retelling evaluates the brutality of womanhood and leaves the audience questioning how much progress we have truly made in the last century.”
