However, the past seems to have caught up with her.

West End tour de force Jamie Lloyd has made a name for himself as a premier interpreter of the work of Harold Pinter. He would go on to present a 6-month long season of the playwright’s work in 2018’s widely acclaimed and star-studded Pinter at the Pinter. Lloyd saw great success in his tenure as Associate Director at Donmar Warehouse and Artistic Director at Trafalgar Studios. His work has earned him numerous Olivier Award nominations and one win thus far.
Design for A Doll’s House comes from award-winning designer Soutra Gilmour (Inadmissible Evidence, Antigone, Urinetown) additional information about the creative team will be released in due course.
A Doll’s House through the years
Ibsen’s play premiered in 1879 and became an overnight success, though it certainly stirred controversy with its content. The play has been widely performed and adapted since it first made waves in Denmark that would spread around the world.
Notable runs include the award-winning Simon Stephens version which enjoyed 2 sell-out runs at the Young Vic before transferring on to the Duke of York’s Theatre and eventually making its way to New York. The critically acclaimed Carrie Cracknell production starred the award-winning Hattie Morahan and Dominic Rowan.
Most recently a reimagined version of the classic play set in Calcutta premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith for a limited 1-month run that ended in early October 2019. The show marked Rachel O’Riordan’s directorial debut and starred Anjana Vasan and Elliot Cowan.
Several film versions of the story have been made over the years including two separate versions which were both released in 1973, one starring Jane Fonda and the other starring Anthony Hopkins. The story has been transplanted, adapted and updated in various ways throughout the years including a 2012 short film entitled Nora in which award-winning Hattie Morahan reprises her role, though a modernised imagining of the character.

Just like the new season which represents change, London theatre will also see change this month as various shows close their doors. However, just like with autumn and its reminder to treasure what we have before it ends, we too can enjoy these shows before they end. Read below to see what’s closing in London Theatre and find how much time you have left to see these wonderful productions.

London Theatre Review: A Doll's House at the Lyric Hammersmith
What a brilliantly inspired idea for Tanika Gupta to reimagine and set Ibsen’s A Doll’s House in nineteenth-century India at the height of the British Raj’s dominion over India; providing a critical commentary of British Imperialism. It is an excellent fit, particularly as Nora, now called Niru, is cast as a young Bengali woman married to Tom (originally Torvald), a white British civil servant working for the British government imposing British rule over India.
