Play to address female societal roles

A Doll’s House will run from 9 to 24 October in Cardiff’s Sherman theatre. It follows the story of Nora, who comes to realise she is unhappy with her role as a wife and mother.

The play is known for challenging perceptions of female roles, and this latest iteration will be accompanied by a series of discussions intended to start a debate around the issues surrounding the roles of women in society.

Speaking to WalesOnline, director Rachel O’Riordan said, “Nora heralded a new female agency in modern theatre. This discourse around accepted female roles in society remains relevant now.”

The first of the discussions will be held on 14 October, and will consider whether Nora is the only iconic role for female characters.
