Broadway performer Adam Trese will play the role of Torvald in Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein's adaptation of A Doll's House, by Henrik Ibsen.
The show will run on the Mainstage, located at 222 Sargent Drive, New Haven, from April 28 through May 23. Nora, a vibrant young woman, has surrounded herself with the trappings of the perfect life. She prides herself in three beautiful children, a big comfortable house, and a handsome husband who has a new job at a large investment bank. But the illusion of her success is about to fade as the secret that hold her family together is exposed for all to see. Edelstein's world premiere adaptation casts Ibsen's ground-breaking, 19th-century drama in a visceral contemporary light.
