Nora is the perfect wife and mother. She is dutiful, beautiful and everything is always in its right place. But when a secret from her past comes back to haunt her, her life rapidly unravels. Over the course of three days, Nora must fight to protect herself and her family or risk losing everything.

While Ibsen’s play caused outrage when it was was first performed in 1879, this new version by Stef Smith reframes the drama in three different time periods which includes the fight for women’s suffrage, the swinging sixties and modern day to ask exactly how far have we come in the last 100 years?
