I thought the acting was weak by both of the main actresses. It was not convincing... The venue was also a problem in that we could hear ALL the street noise. It might be a good idea for the theater to invest in a sound proof door.

This is a fresh and sparkling production of "A Doll's House." Positioning the story in the 1960's is brilliant. It makes a venerable play more relevant than ever. Kate Cares' performance as Nora is tonally perfect in every phase of the play.

_A Doll’s House 

_by Henrik Ibsen

directed by ICT Artistic Director Chris Maher 

SAC-RI-FICE (noun): destruction or surrender of something for the sake of something else.

New York City, 1962. As America hovers on the cusp of a second-wave feminist movement whose effects are felt to this day, Nora Helmer is a woman lost. Her entire life, Nora has defined herself by what she is to others-daughter, mother, wife, friend. Now she lives in a beautiful home with a husband and children who adore her, yet often feel like strangers. But after a dark secret from the past comes back to haunt her, Nora is finally forced to face the underlying realities of her carefully constructed existence.

Henrik Ibsen was a Norwegian playwright and director who lived from 1828-1906. He wrote several groundbreaking plays, including A Doll’s House, Ghosts, An Enemy of the People and Hedda Gabler, all of which are performed and studied worldwide. Ibsen is considered one of the fathers of theatrical realism and his influence is still felt today.


A Doll’s House_ features the acting talents of Josh Atkins, Catherine Bullard, Kate Cares, Stephen Dunn, Barbara Roeder Harris, Mark Shallow and Genevieve Thompson.
