Nora, by Belinda McKeon in collaboration with Annie Ryan, a new play after Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, makes its world premiere as part of Dublin Theatre Festival.

It’s 2025. A dangerous world for those who can’t afford to protect themselves.
This house keeps safe a marriage, a partnership, a life of success and ease, a priceless collection and a daughter who has lacked for nothing; things seem perfect as a power couple prepares for a glitzy party among the art-world elite.

But when the secret upon which this life is built threatens to push through the polished surface, questions about what is real and what is not can no longer be ignored.
