School of Theatre to present Nora's House

Tigerville SC (September 1, 2016) The North Greenville University School of Theatre begins their 2016-17 season with an intricate play, Nora’s House, which will include audience input.

Nora’s House is adapted by NGU Theatre Professor and Executive Director of Greenville’s Applied Theatre Center Dale Savidge from Henrik Ibsen’s classic,A Doll’s House.

The play is an innovative and experimental approach to deconstructing a classic piece of theatrical literature to make it relevant for a contemporary audience. Savidge and a team of acting and design students, reimagines the world of Ibsen’s classic.

Start at the end: Nora is leaving her family. Work backwards and ask yourself if she is right or wrong. Now express your opinion. In this experimental riff on A Doll’s House, the audience is challenged to examine and confront issues of femininity, power, status, and parity in marriage. This is theatre that tries to make the world a better place.
