About the Event

The heavy sound of a door being slammed resounds through theatrical history and where Ibsen ends on an exit Beresford begins. As the aftershocks of Nora’s departure from the family home, her children and husband ripple across the decades  we see the impact of her decision on the life of her daughter Emmy.  Starring George Beresford as Nora and Torvald’s daughter Emmy, this production charts Emmy’s journey from childhood to adulthood, through the 1970s and 80s, as she embraces the future while the past holds her back.   As Emmy searches for her own identity and freedom she comes to know the truths of the father who raised her and the mother she lost. #afteradollshouse
