Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is one of the most performed plays of modern times. It created waves across the artistic world when it premiered in 1879 with its unusually bold take on gender issues.
This adaptation of “A Doll’s House”, written and directed by Basab Pradhan, retells Ibsen’s classic by exploring gender stereotypes within a seemingly perfect Indian marriage in the Bay Area. What is the status of a capable and educated woman in a household where she has chosen to be the homemaker? Is she truly an equal? Does a woman’s role as a mother and a wife preclude her own identity as an individual?
The play is a critical examination of these issues in a 21st century Indian-American setting.
