Following two sold-out runs at the Young Vic, don’t miss your last chance to see this “utterly electrifying” (Daily Express) production in the West End for a strictly limited time. Must close 26 October.

Award-winning Hattie Morahan reprises her five-star 'performance of a lifetime' (Sunday Telegraph) as Nora Helmer alongside 'excellent' (Daily Telegraph) Dominic Rowan who returns as her husband Torvald. 

'If you ever see a production of the play, see this one… Hattie Morahan’s Nora is a once-in-a-lifetime performance.'
The Sunday Telegraph

'An intense emotional thriller…Ian MacNeil’s set is like a spinning doll’s house come to life…Hattie Morahan’s Nora offers a piercing study in desperation.'
Sunday Express

'Ferociously raw and palpably radical…Hattie Morahan is instantly enthralling.'
Independent on Sunday
