A doll’s house
New Delhi Players is excited to bring their newest production, Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House in Hindi as Gudiya Ghar at Akshara Theater. It’s designed and directed by the celebrated director Basab Bhattacharya whose last production Sandhya Chhaya was warmly received by critics and the audience.
It’s a play that is perfectly timed for today as it has been in any time that it has been performed in since 1879. In the century and more since, the play and the role of Nora have taken on iconic status; UNESCO's Memory of the World register calls Nora ‘a symbol throughout the world, for women fighting for liberation and equality’.
The play’s director, Bhattacharya, works with a Government organisation and has directed many plays such as Kissa Hakeem Sahib Ka, Khubsoorat Bahu, Sandhya Chhaya and many more! He has a knack for giving a lot of new comers a chance and let them grow and learn with his free style of directing. He also has an uncanny sense of aesthetics with a minimal approach while designing plays. He has also been an actor in some of the very successful plays such as Mahim Junction, Death of a Salesman and began with acting workshops with Yatrik in the 90s. Before going for the play, you’d want to know about the actors and others!
