Part of the New Haven company's 40th anniversary season, the work plays March 31-April 1 at the University Theatre. Conceived, directed and adapted by Lee Breuer from Ibsen's classic A Doll’s House, the new take on the drama casts all female roles with tall actresses, and male roles are played by actors under five feet tall.

The production debuted at St. Ann's Warehouse in Brooklyn in 2003 and has since played France, the midwest U.S. Next will be dates in Jerusalem and Hong Kong. The Connecticut stop is part of a New England leg of the tour which began at Rhode Island College's Nazarian Center for the Performing Arts (March 29) and continues on to Dartmouth College's Hopkins Center (April 4-5), MASSMoCA's Hunter Center (April 7) and Purchase College's Performing Arts Center (April 9).

Yale Rep currently presents the world premiere of Marcus Gardley's dance of the holy ghosts: a play on memory starring Chuck Cooper (through April 8). Next, artistic director James Bundy directs William Shakespeare's All's Well That Ends Well (April 21-May 20) starring Kathleen Chalfant and featuring choreography by John Carrafa to close the 40th Anniversary season.
