Young Vic’s A Doll’s House goes Digital
DIGITAL Theatre’s latest release is the Young Vic’s production of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
This new English language version by Olivier award-winning playwright Simon Stephens from a literal translation by Charlotte Barslund, is directed by Young Vic Associate Director Carrie Cracknell.
Nora’s world seems ideal: beautiful children, elegant home, adoring husband. But her life is shot through with lies and delusion. When the truth bursts into the open, Nora is shocked to discover how radically her life has to change.
Hattie Morahan plays the iconic role of Nora Helmer in her Young Vic debut together with Dominic Rowan (as Torvald), Nick Fletcher (Nils Krogstad), Yolanda Kettle (Helene), Steve Toussaint (Doctor Rank), Lynne Verrall (Anna), Susannah Wise (Kristine Linde), Vincent Curson-Smith (Ivar Helmer), Jake Tuesley (Jon Helmer) and Dorothea MacGibbon (Emmy Helmer).
A Doll’s House is designed by Ian MacNeil, with costumes by Gabrielle Dalton, lighting by Guy Hoare, music by Stuart Earl, sound by David McSeveney and choreography by Quinny Sacks.
A trailer for A Doll’s House is available on YouTube at www.youtube.com/watch.
A Doll’s House, the third collaboration between Digital Theatre and the Young Vic, is now available at www.digitaltheatre.com as well as education resources including exclusive interviews with cast and crew at www.digitaltheatreplus.com.
Digital Theatre, launched in 2009 by Robert Delamere and Tom Shaw, works in partnership with Britain’s leading theatre companies to capture live performance authentically onscreen. Using multiple camera angles and high-definition technology, they bring the drama and emotion of each production to a global online audience. Each production is available to rent online for a limited period or download.
Digital Theatre and the Young Vic have previously collaborated to capture Kathryn Hunter’s acclaimed one woman show Kafka’s Monkey – a production which has enjoyed two sell-out seasons at the theatre – and The Container, presented in a shipping container outside the Young Vic and in association with Amnesty International, which highlights the plight of illegal immigrants coming to the UK.
A Doll’s House also marks the first production to be released since Digital Theatre launched an App for Samsung Smart TV. The production joins Digital Theatre’s full catalogue, which can be watched through the App for free with the purchase of any Download or HD Download from the website.

Bringing together the current production catalogue available through the Digital Theatre website, the resource also includes behind-the-scenes documentaries and graphic learning resources, enriching students’ cultural experience whilst facilitating the study of English, Drama and Theatre Studies.
