This month’s pick

For our May selection, we are going to be reading A Doll’s House by Henrick Ibsen.

Why did we pick this?

First performed in 1879, this play caused quite a stir at the time. The play is set in Norway and is about the life of a married woman, who is trapped by the male-dominated world she inhabits. Questioning the place of women in society was pretty forward thinking for the time and initial performances of the play caused controversy. That said, the play went on to become very popular and the issues it raises are still just as relevant in the world today.

We think this this play will spark interesting discussion and it’s also a great example of the traditional three-act play structure.

 

How does it work?

All you need to do is read the play and come on over to our Members Facebook Group to join the discussion! Book club threads will be marked with the hashtag #bookclub, so it will be easy to find the discussion.

When does it start?

Discussion will start on Wednesday 30 May at 7.30pm.  Don’t worry if you haven’t finished the play by then, we’ll be starting at the beginning with our discussion, so there will still be a lot that you can get out of it.

However, we can’t be held liable for any spoilers, so if this is something that will bother you, probably best to finish the play before the book club starts.

We’ll be leaving the discussion on the play open on the Facebook Group, so if there’s a question or a topic you want to explore with a group of writers, this is the perfect opportunity.
