The West End will welcome the transfer of A Doll’s House in the late summer of 2013, with Hattie Morahan and Dominic Rowan among the cast members returning as the show moves to the Duke of York’s Theatre following its run at The Young Vic earlier in the summer.

Ibsen’s classic has been seen here before, of course, but this is an unbeatable opportunity to witness two acting powerhouses in lead roles as they portray iconic characters under the intimate roof of the Duke of York’s.  So whether you are a fan of the work of these well known performers or if you wish to pick up theatre tickets for a play that has been popular since it premiered in 1879, this is the show for you.

In A Doll’s House we are introduced to the character of Nora, who is a woman with everything going for her. Not only does she have a loving family around her, she also has a wonderful home in which she dwells. But there’s more here than meets the eye. Despite her reputation as a devoted wife, she is having second thoughts as hypocrisy and scandal occurs behind the scenes, with an array of delusions permeating through the relationship. Soon she realises that these secrets coming out into the open are going to force her to make a change.

Hattie Morahan is a well known actress with a reputation of her own. Unlike Nora’s, however, it is well founded as she has appeared in a range of shows dating back to the 1990s. Recent stage work has included David Hare’s Plenty at the Sheffield Crucible and Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing at the Old Vic Theatre, whilst her television and film work includes Eternal Law, The Bank Job, The Golden Compass and Sense And Sensibility, among others. So she is more than capable of portraying a character as compelling as Nora in the West End.

As such, A Doll’s House is certain to have audiences flocking to the Duke of York’s Theatre, much like Passion Play did before it. The former is set to appear in front of London theatre audiences in May, with a run beginning on Wednesday 14th August 2013 (previews from Thursday 8th August 2013).
