Bergman adaptation of Ibsen's A Dollhouse (giving, perhaps, the former a little too much credit).

'Ingmar Bergman’s searing 1981 reduction of Henrik Ibsen’s immortal “A Doll’s House” grabs its viewers from the outset and never lets go.'
David C. Nichols, Backstage.

About the production

“First produced in the early ‘80s, the play receives a near-optimum staging from director Dana Jackson at Pacific Resident Theatre. In uniformly cogent performances, a superlative cast cuts to the emotional heart of Ibsen’s masterwork.”
– Los Angeles Times

“… the clarity and power of the show’s performances make this a textbook dynamic production of the tragic drama.”
– LA Weekly "GO"

"Now getting its overdue Los Angeles debut at Pacific Resident Theatre. . . Ingmar Berman’s searing 1981 reduction of Henrik Ibsen’s immortal “A Doll’s House” grabs its viewers from the outset and never lets go.”
– David C. Nichols, Backstage.

"The adaptation by Bergman, though like the original by Ibsen, is spellbinding to the very end. Driver is absolutely the perfect model for Nora in her performance. Greenquist plays a domineering man, while at the same time, he can be playful and sexy with his wife as he fulfills his role. Other pertinent characters to the play, and extremely well presented, are Martha Hackett (Mrs. Linde), Scott Conte), and Bruce French (Doctor Rank)."
