    A very interesting adaptation of the Ibsen play that retained the spirit and emotional complexity of the characters. While the re-location of the drama to Calcutta altered the background politics the domestic tensions were maintained.

    Must say I was mesmerised! The adaption of Ibsen’s text to the Indian context worked perfectly, without any trace of cultural appropriation – at least as far as I as a white, Christian, male etc can detect. The actors were amazing (the way they deliver text - even a Swede can hear every word!) and music, set, light - it all came together. Not often I get a catharsis in the auditoriums, but this sure was! Also, very good to see so many you spectators in the audience, and gee did they absorb… Thanks all involved!

    The addition of the colonial issues added to the play.

    Successful transfer to 1890 India, the era Ibsen wrote the play with social tensions & customs underlying the story. Terrific set & outstanding acting especially from the three principals made this a memorable evening
