A Doll's House


  • Lyric Hammersmith Lyric Square London, England, W6 United Kingdom (map)

Calcutta. 1879.

Niru is a young Bengali woman married to an English colonial bureaucrat – Tom.

Tom loves Niru, exoticising her as a frivolous plaything to be admired and kept. But Niru has a long-kept secret. And just as she thinks she is almost free of it, it threatens to bring her life crashing down around her.
