Tanika Gupta transposes the setting of Ibsen’s classic play to India in 1879 where ‘Nora’, now Niru, is an Indian woman married to ‘Torvald’, now Tom, an Englishman working for the British Colonial Administration in Calcutta. Niru risks her own reputation in order to save her husband’s and in the process discovers herself.
This new version of A Doll’s House takes a fresh look at the play, shining a light on British colonial history and race relations as well as gender politics and class, enabling an analysis of different forms of subjugation and servitude.

Premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in 2019, ‘Ibsen’s classic (is) shrewdly reimagined in colonial India’ (Michael Billington, The Guardian)

Tower Theatre was founded in 1932, is a cultural icon in east London and one of the capital’s most active non-professional theatres. The A Doll’s House adaptation is its current show, out of 18 productions a year.
