    Theater: Williamstown Theatre Festival / 1000 Main Street, Williamstown, Massachusetts, 01267

    Synopsis: 

    Nora Helmer has everything an affluent housewife could want: beautiful children, an adoring husband, a bright future. When a carelessly buried secret rises to the surface, her well-calibrated, though artificial, domestic ideal begins to crumble. Terrified by this new reality, Nora must choose between outward perfection and inner truth. Still bracingly relevant, Ibsen's masterpiece, in a striking contemporary translation, offers no safer conclusions today than when it stormed stages of 19th-century Europe.

    Sam Gold (Circle Mirror Transformation) directs a cast that includes Oscar Isaac (Shakespeare in the Park's Romeo and Juliet) as Krogstad, Hamish Linklater (Shakespeare in the Park's The Merchant of Venice, The New Adventures of Old Christine) as Torvald, Matthew Maher (Gone Baby Gone) as Doctor Rank, Lily Rabe (The Merchant of Venice, WTF's Crimes of the Heart) as Nora, and Lili Taylor (Six Feet Under, Aunt Dan and Lemon, WTF's The Landscape of the Body) as Kristine.
