Tanika Gupta transposes the setting of Ibsen's classic play to India in1879 where Nora is an Indian woman married to Torvald, an English man working for the British Colonial Administration in Calcutta. Nora risks her own reputation in order to save her husband's and in the process discovers herself. This new version of A Doll's House takes a fresh look at the play shining a light on British colonial history and race relations as well as gender politics and class.
