News   A Doll's House to Transfer From London's Young Vic to West End's Duke of York's in August
Carrie Cracknell's production of A Doll's House, starring the award-winning Hattie Morahan as Nora Helmer, is to transfer from the Young Vic (where it has had two sell-out runs) to the West End's Duke of York's Theatre.

It will begin performances Aug. 8 prior to an official opening Aug. 14, for a 12-week run through Oct. 26.

This production premiered at the Young Vic in July 2012, and returned for a second season in March 2013. In a press statement, David Lan, artistic director of the Young Vic, said, "We are thrilled to be back in the West End bringing our two time sold-out production of A Doll's House to the Duke of York’s and I am delighted that throughout the run we will be offering over 29,000 West End tickets at Young Vic prices. We hope thousands more will experience this exceptional cast led by Hattie Morahan in Carrie Cracknell, Simon Stephens and Ian MacNeil's inspired re-invention of Ibsen's great play.

Over 100 tickets will be available at £10 every night, and throughout the run, there will be over 15,000 top-price tickets available at £32.50 if booked before Aug. 8.

For her performance as Nora, Morahan won the 2012 Evening Standard Award and Critics’ Circle Award for Best Actress. She was also Olivier Award-nominated for the role. Other recent stage credits include The Dark Earth And The Night Sky for the Almeida, The Real Thing for the Old Vic and The City at the Royal Court. She played Elinor in the BBC adaptation of "Sense and Sensibility" and has a regular role in "Outnumbered."

She is reunited with David Rowan, who reprises his role as her husband Torvald. His theatre credits include After Dido for the Young Vic and English National Opera, The Village Bike for the Royal Court, Henry VIII for the Globe, The Misanthrope at the Comedy Theatre and Berenice for the Donmar Warehouse.  He plays Jake Thorne in ITV's crime drama series "Law & Order UK." Morahan and Rowan will be joined by Nick Fletcher as Nils Krogstad and Steve Toussaint as Doctor Rank. Further casting will be announced shortly. 

Set designs are by Ian MacNeill with costumes by Gabrielle Dalton, lighting by Guy Hoare, music by Stuart Earl, sound by David McSeveney and choreography by Quinny Sacks. The literal translation is by Charlotte Barslund. 

The Young Vic, Mark Rubinstein, Gavin Kalin and Neil Laidlaw present the Young Vic production of A Doll's House in the West End. The production is supported by the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation through its social investment fund.
