This striking reimaging of Ibsen’s classic play is set in Calcutta during British colonialist rule. Niru, a young Bengali woman, is married to English bureaucrat Tom. To him, she is a prize possession, a doting wife whose purpose is to serve. But when she takes agency of her own, how will he respond?
Exploring gender politics and male ownership, this razor-sharp
contemporary adaptation confronts complex race relations through the
lens of colonialism.
Written by highly acclaimed British-Indian playwright Tanika Gupta, and originally staged at The Lyric in 2018. This production is directed by Meneka Das.
First night is just £8. Standard prices £14-£18.
