Starring critically acclaimed actress Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Molly’s Game, Interstellar), Jamie Lloyd’s groundbreaking new revival of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House is set to make an explosive debut on the West End. Based on Norweigen writer Ibsen’s 1879 play, A Doll’s House follows the story of a woman’s fight for survival in a male dominated world.
Written by Frank McGuiness and directed by Jamie Lloyd, A Doll’s House boasts a star-studded creative team. As the third and final show in the Jamie Lloyd Company’s Playhouse Season, after directing Cyrano de Bergerac and the Seagull, theatre tickets are expected to be in extremely high demand so book them now to avoid disappointment!
Wife to a successful husband and mother of three children living in a beautiful house, Nora (Jessica Chastain) seems to lead the perfect life on the surface. However, Nora is not satisfied with her lack of power as a housewife and how her role is conceived as seemingly frivolous.
In order to save her husband's life, Nora secretly takes out a loan, which leads to conflict with her husband. Determined to establish her independence, Nora challenges her gender role and the status quo....
A Doll’s House ticket prices range from £15 to £218.75 depending on where you sit in the theatre. The Playhouse theatre has a capacity of 786 seats and is divided across the Stalls, the Dress Circle and the Upper Circle.
If you are looking for premium seats, then these can be found in the middle of the Stalls directly opposite the stage. There are also excellent seats in the centre of the Dress Circle which provide incredible views of the stage.
The cheapest tickets in the Playhouse Theatre can be found in the Upper Circle, which is the section of the theatre furthest away from the stage and therefore has restricted viewing. There are also more discounted tickets to the rear of the Dress Circle.
