A Doll’s House: December 1987

Ibsen’s classic drama that shocked audiences at the time. It concerns a woman who turns her back on her oppressive husband.

Fred Habgood directed. Helen Hayes was Nora, I was Helmer. My main memory is of my daughter, Frances, being very upset when I was shouting angrily at Helen in the last act – she burst loudly into tears and had to be taken out by my wife, Lesley.
