By Lucas Hnath, directed by Caroline Stacey
The Street Theatre, Canberra City
Until Sunday 23 June 2019
This critically-acclaimed piece by New York playwright Lucas Hnath has been described as a ‘sequel of sorts’ to Henrik Ibsen’s 19th century classic.
A confident and independent Nora (played by Rachel Berger) returns 15 years after leaving her husband, Torvald (PJ Williams), and three children. Back in her former house, Nora engages in conversation with Torvald, nanny and housekeeper Anne-Marie (played by Camilla Blunden) and daughter Emmy (Lily Constantine).
It is the first production of the play in Canberra, and only the second in Australia. Most of the cast and crew have a strong connection with Canberra.
Director Caroline Stacey has worked with theatre and opera companies and festivals around Australia, and has directed many productions at The Street.
Camilla Blunden has worked in professional theatre as an actor, director, writer and educator in Canberra for more than 40 years.
PJ Williams is an actor, director, lighting designer and freelance media professional who has lived in Canberra since 2002, while Lily Constantine returns to Canberra after studying drama in Melbourne.
