Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House adapted by Tanika Gupta
This new production brings us to Calcutta in 1879. We meet Niru, a young Bengali woman who is married to Tom, an English colonial official. There is no doubt that Tom loves her, but he seems to revel in her otherness and think of her as a decorative object meant to be viewed and placed somewhere safe.
A secret that Niru has protected for a long time seems to be almost behind her, but just as she thinks she might finally be free from it, it seems poised to topple her from the pedestal her life has been perched on.
Though set in the distant past of rampant British Colonialism the themes of gender politics, race and ownership are starkly relevant today and presented with a strong and compelling female voice.
