A Doll's House
by Classic Theatre of San Antonio
Nov. 03 - Nov. 26
“Women should be someone not something.” – Mary Cassatt
Set in 1950’s America with a Mad Men flair, The Classic Theatre’s production of A Doll’s House written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879, is the “modern tragedy” that changed theatre forever. It opened the door to realism. So explosive was the message, that a marriage was not sacrosanct, that a man’s authority in his home should not go unchallenged, and that the prime duty of anyone was to find out who he or she really is and to become that person, that the play shocked audiences then and still resonates with them today. Sometimes the perfectly presented family and home are not what they seem… Sometimes finding your home means finding yourself first.
Directed by Kelly Roush, The Classic Theatre’s production of A Doll’s House is the second show celebrating the company’s 10th anniversary season. Familiar faces at Classic like Kacey Roye (Bus Stop, The Tempest), Nick Lawson (Born Yesterday, The Merchant of Venice), Christina Casella (Private Lives, The Importance of Being Earnest), and Zach Lewis (School for Scandal, 9 Circles) return to the stage.
