A Doll’s House

26 May 2017

This week BIS HCMC Drama and English Departments were very proud to present our literature performance of A Doll’s House.

The literature performance each year is designed to give an opportunity to some of our most talented actors in years 10 and 12 to take on a challenging theatrical text. It is also a way to support the studies of English literature students by allowing them access to a live performance of a text that they are studying, something that can be very difficult within an international environment.

This year our amazing students took on an even greater challenge, creating two versions of Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House, one was a traditional translation of the text and one was a modern rewriting with a gender swap of roles.

The students have performed to their peers and to their parents and school community this week, giving professional and engaging performances that they should be extremely proud of. I don’t think we can underestimate the challenge of our students taking on classical texts with complex social issues, and the value of being able to see these performances.

We would like to congratulate and thank all of the students involved, and to give a special congratulations to Bill Nguyen and Mickel Rosales in Year 12 who took on major and contrasting roles in both interpretations.
