PLYMOUTH –The atrium at Rising Tide Charter Public School will be the stage for award-winning drama next week when the school presents its fall show, “A Doll’s House.”
Winner of the 1997 Tony award for best revival, A Doll’s House is a three-act play written by Norway’s Henrik Ibsen. The Rising Tide students are setting the play in the 1950s. It will be staged in an intimate setting in the school’s atrium.
The play centers on Nora Helmer, housewife and mother, who appears to enjoy a pampered life yet suffers from a crippling economic dependency on her husband. Because of the conservative society in which they live, her husband continues to exert strict control, and Nora realizes her only course of action is to leave the family home.
The cast is made up of Rising Tide students in grades 9 to 12, who were also involved in designing and creating the set, props, lights, costumes, and sound effects. Raelynn Whitney, a Rising Tide senior, plays Nora. Freshman Connor Nemec plays her husband, Torvald.
Performances will be held at 6 p.m. next Thursday and Friday, Dec. 13 and 14 at the school at 59 Armstrong Road. Tickets are available at the door; admission is $7 per person. For more information, call Rising Tide Charter Public School at 508-747-2620.
