Jamie Lloyd's new West End season of contemporary adaptions of classic plays has got off to a terrific start with James McAvoy's Cyrano de Bergerac. Next up is the hotly anticipated The Seagull with Emilia Clarke and following that we'll be treated to the sensation Oscar-winning Jessica Chastain in A Doll's House.
Two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain makes her West End debut as Nora in a version of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House by Frank McGuiness, in a radical new production by director Jamie Lloyd. Nora seems to have it all - a successful husband, adorable children and a beautiful home. But her acceptance of the status quo is about to undergo a profound change. Is this picture perfect life anything more than an act? And what happens if she is no longer willing to play her role? Following Cyrano de Bergerac and The Seagull, the third and final show in The Jamie Lloyd Company’s Playhouse Season is a story of one woman’s fight for her own life.
