Ibsen with Rural Players

LINDSEY Rural Players will be performing their production of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House at The Broadbent Theatre, Wickenby, this week.

The play tells of the dilemma of Nora Helmer, who has illegally forged a signature in order to fund a life-saving trip for her husband.

She does not realise that her husband, who has been recently promoted at work, will now be the money lender’s employer, and intends to sack him for a previous misdemeanour.

In order to safeguard his position, the money lender threatens to inform Nora’s husband and even the police. She feels threatened and trapped, and believes that a miracle will happen and that her husband, when he finds out, will defend her actions and ensure that they face the outcome together.

However, she seems to have misunderstood the state of her marriage, and her husband’s entrenched moral values.

A Doll’s House will be performed from Thursday to Saturday, April 19-21, starting at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £7, with concessions at £5.50, from the box office on 01673 885500 or online at www.broadbent.org .
