‘A Doll’s House’ at WCU

Written by 

art dollThe 1960s version of the production “A Doll’s House” will be performed at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12-15 and at 3 p.m. Feb. 16, in the Hoey Auditorium at Western Carolina University.


The show is part of WCU’s 2013-14 Stage and Screen Mainstage Season. Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 “A Doll’s House,” one of the world’s most performed plays, reveals the love, deceptions — and self-deceptions — that lead a woman with few alternatives to re-evaluate her identity as a wife and mother. The character Nora, who has been objectified, centers her life on pleasing her husband but struggles with not knowing who she is as an individual. Meanwhile, her friend, a self-sufficient pragmatist who has a career, yearns for the companionship of a romantic relationship.

The production is connected to WCU’s 2013-14 campuswide interdisciplinary learning theme, “1960s: Take It All In,” in which the campus community has been challenged to reflect on the legacy of the decade.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and WCU faculty and staff, and $7 in advance and $10 the day of the show for students. or 828.227.2479.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceIt’s not only a time capsule, but also a window into the future.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
