A Doll's House

Henrik Ibsen threw a monkey wrench into the societal machine when he unleashed A Doll's House in 1897. The tale of Nora, a woman on the verge of abandoning her husband and children to embark on a life of her own, challenged 19th-century standards with its unflinching portrayal of a splintering marriage and its complete evisceration of patriarchy. Further upending expectations, EgoPo's take on A Doll's House is a crafty revision in which a thirteen-year-old actress, packing a particular set of toys and a doll's house, demolishes Ibsen's tour de force, giving birth to a new incarnation of Nora.

The Lady from the Sea

In The Lady from the Sea, Ibsen's penchant for symbolism splashes and shines. Ellida, the daughter of a lighthouse keeper, pines for the sea as much as she pines for a sailor she was once engaged to—and still is. But the sailor has been long on the lam for murdering his captain. Years later, she seems to be happily married to a widowed doctor and a happy mother to her new stepchildren. But when the sailor returns, Ellida must make a choice: to stay with her husband or follow her love of the sea.

Gint

Obie Award-winning playwright Romulus Linney's retelling of Ibsen's fairytale Peer Gynt takes the story to the Applachain Mountains of 1917 and gives it a surrealistic spin. On a quest to become "something great, grand, and glorious," the hapless, and often drunk, Pete Gint enters into dalliances with a married woman and a woman who transforms into a hog, although his heart belongs to Sally Vickso—a woman who thinks he's a cad. Although he finally wins Sally over, the hog spoils it when she arrives with Gint's child. Romance, satire, and unbridled strangeness follow as Gint escapes Appalachia to become a corporate billionaire, has the rug pulled from him, and struggles to return to the arms of Sally.
