‘Nora slammed the door on a broken, obsolete system for us, and now a hundred years later we have this free, independent union.’
Across four time periods, four couples intersect with a production of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. When it comes to identity, gender and unrequited love, how do societal expectations and pressures change over time? Samuel Adamson maps a constellation of four queer stories within four generations in one family.
Wife opens on 4 June, with previews from 30 May, and runs until 6 July, coinciding with London’s Pride parade.
