Theatre Department to Stage A Doll's House

The Hamilton College Theatre Department will present an update of Henrik Ibsen’s landmark 1879 drama A Doll's House in eight performances in April. Directed by Hamilton Professor of Theatre Craig Latrell, performances will be staged Thursday, April 15 - Saturday, April 17, and Wednesday, April 21 - Saturday, April 24, at 8 p.m. There will be a matinee performance on Saturday, April 17, at 2 p.m. All performances are in Minor Theater. 

The Hamilton production of A Doll’s House is set in suburban America in 1964--one year after John F. Kennedy was assassinated and Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique. The play follows Nora and Torvald Helmer, a young couple who seem to have it all: a happy home, loving children, and a secure future. But when Krogstad, a man from their past, threatens to reveal the lengths to which Nora has gone to preserve her home and family, he sets into motion a series of revelations which threatens them all. Can Nora save her family? Or must she save herself instead? 

Admission is $3 for seniors and $5 for adults. For reservations call (315) 859-4331.
