Simon Stephens's agile new version [is] ... quick and clear and full of subtle touches Susannah Clapp, Guardian A sensible, sensitive and spirited version ... that chimes with the debt-laden times we're trapped in and poses still-pressing questions Dominic Cavendish, Telegraph The supple new version of the text by Simon Stephens is [a] great plus point ... in this definitive take on a classic -- Fiona Mountford Evening Standard An astute, often savagely funny version by Simon Stephens ... And as the doll at the play's heart and hearth cracks like porcelain and the woman emerges, it's with a force that's shattering. -- Sam Marlowe Metro Simon Stephens's new English-language version of the text ... makes the characters' anxieties feel contemporary despite the period dress. "Feminism" may not have been in Ibsen's vocabulary, but he was undoubtedly concerned with the roles we all play and why. Financial Times
