    Name: A Doll's House
    Date: January 2, 2018 - January 18, 2018
    Event Description:
    A riveting search for identity by a woman who refuses the domestic role assigned to her by society Were she around today, Nora Helmer might be among those sending a #metoo tweet. A seminal figure in the fight for women’s equality and recognition, the main character in A Doll’s House embodies many of the issues underlying today’s ongoing redefinition of women’s role in society. “When Nora walks out on her husband, it not only expands our ideas of what a woman can be, but also our idea of what a woman character in a piece of theater might be expected to do,” says Rhinebeck Theatre Society President Dorothy Luongo, director of the new RTS production of Ibsen’s classic drama. Presented at The Center for Performing Arts at Rhinebeck Feb. 2- 18, A Doll’s House opens a year-long series of RTS productions focused on women. “It might seem counter-intuitive to begin a season of women with a play written by a man, but Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, written in 1879, is arguably where it all began,” explains Luongo. “The recent accusations from women across the nation bombard us with reminders that women are still trapped by assumptions from male associates.”
