A DOLL'S HOUSE and HEDDA GABLER Come to Theatre UNO, 4/12-22

Theatre UNO, the theatre production arm of the University of New Orleans (UNO) Department of Film & Theatre, closes their 2017-18 performance season with Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House and Hedda Gabler in repertory at the UNO Performing Arts Center, Robert E. Nims Theater, April 12-29.

A DOLL'S HOUSE: A bold take on Ibsen's classic feminist tale that pushes against convention and dares to question societal norms. What is a woman's place in a man's world? What will Nora do under the immense pressures of domestic expectation? Directed by graduate student Kristin Shoffner, the cast features Carli Collis, Patrick Hunter, Ryan M. Decker, Hunter Dupepe, and Lauren Erwin, with Halle Jones, and stage management by Delilah Lee. Performances are April 12, 13, 14, 26, and 28 at 7:30 PM.

HEDDA GABLER: Ibsen's brazen portrait of a disenchanted newlywed examines female identity and the tradition of marriage. As Hedda struggles to find meaning and purpose in her existence, how will she affect the world around her? What's a girl without options to do? Directed by special guest Amy Boyce Holtcamp, the cast includes Kristin Shoffner, Ryan M. Decker, Patrick Hunter, Hayden Guthrie, and Austin Krieger, with Flo Young and Delilah Lee, stage managed by Kenny Latour, assisted by David Barrileux.

Performances are April 19, 20, 21, and 27 at 7:30 PM; April 29 at 2:30 PM.

Both productions are designed by lighting designer/technical director Diane K. Baas (Asst. Professor), scenic designer Kevin Griffith (Assoc. Professor), costume designer Anthony French (Professor), and sound designer Asher Griffith (guest artist).

Tickets are $12 for general admission; $8 for students, seniors, and UNO faculty/staff. Tickets may be purchased online at Theatre.UNO.edu (credit/debit only) or in-person at the UNO Performing Arts Center box office, beginning 30 minutes before performances.
