Unity Books is delighted to be hosting a live rehearsal of

A Doll’s House by Emily Perkins – adapted from Ibsen’s original &

directed by Katherine McRae



Please join us on Friday 28th July at 6pm for what will undoubtedly be an excellent evening.

Nora Helmer has it all: a successful and attractive husband, a big house and two charming children. But as Christmas festivities get underway, events from the past return to wreak havoc in paradise. Nora’s life begins to fracture, leaving her trapped inside a web of secrets and lies… Will the truth set her free or is she in too deep?

 In the original play, Ibsen controversially exposed the power and gender dynamics of a marriage. This modern take, by celebrated New Zealand writer Emily Perkins, picks up Ibsen’s gauntlet and drops it into present-day New Zealand. Sophie Hambleton (Katydid, TV’s Westside) commands the stage as Nora. Directed by award-winning Katherine McRae (Cherish, The Enemy of the People), this production will shock and move you.

“Perkins has lobbed a grenade onto the stage and we wait anxiously for it to explode.”
– James Wenley, Metro 2015
