Mr & Mrs Helmer are the iconic power couple. They excel at work, staying on top, socialising. They excel at excelling. But as his autobiography rolls out around Christmas-time, it seems there are a few things that Mr. Helmer may not have mentioned in the foreword. Working with some of the UK's leading Mental Health charities, we use verbatim interviews and emotive choreography to rocket Ibsen's famous tale into a hugely relevant re-telling for modern audiences. Exploring stigmas around gender and mental health, this artful adaptation focuses on the impossible idolisation of one 'perfect' woman, by a man who walks with weights around his ankles. "A Doll's House" showcases the play-writing collaboration of two of Theatrical Niche's founding members, as well as the direction of critically-acclaimed artist, Alice Sillett. This new production incorporates the words and intonations of mental abuse & mental health problem sufferers, giving Ibsen a resoundingly contemporary voice.
