Pan Pan: A Doll House

Pan Pan follow the huge success of The Rehearsal: Playing the Dane and Beckett’s All That Fall with A Doll House, a new take on the Henrik Ibsen classic, and given that it’s Pan Pan you can expect the unexpected. Director Gavin Quinn says: ‘Pan Pan's new version of Ibsen's A Doll House, (the world's first great prose drama which at the time exploded like a bomb into contemporary life) will be the opening show of the ‘new’ Smock Alley Theatre. Smock Alley was originally a theatre in the 17th century and hosted the Irish Premiere of Hamlet. This version of A Doll House will examine the like- and unlike-ability of these famous Ibsen characters and how they can still connect to today's supposedly restless age.’ Design is by Aedín Cosgrove, costumes by Bruno Schwengl and the fine cast includes Áine Ní Mhuirí, Charlie Bonner, Daniel Reardon, Dermot Magennis, Judith Roddy and Pauline Hutton. Previews until Mon 9 and runs from 10 -28 April.

  1. Saw it last Friday. Tremendous lead performance by Judith Roddy. Daringly creative direction, relying on imagination in stead of customary set & prop usage, and all the more effective for it. Great to see Smock Alley develop. Captivating, quality stuff!
