November 8 – December 8, 2002
Directed by Jack Sbarbori. Featuring John Decker, Sharon Dodd, Erika Imhoof/Cody Jones, Steve LaRocque, Stephanie Mumford, and Nick Sampson.
The Quotidian Theatre Company has transported Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House from Norway circa 1879, to Galveston, Texas, in 1918 — and the change works well. …Steve LaRocque and Erika Imhoof, in particular, enliven every scene they enter. …the play hangs on the delicate shoulders of Nola (Ibsen’s Nora) — a difficult character to play. Mumford, a charming Nola, aces both magnolia and steel aspects of the role
Pamela Winters, City Paper
…the shift…to twentieth century Texas helps modern audiences connect… a realism…that leaves the actors on their own to reveal the inner workings of their characters’ minds. The cast does that well, especially Mumford and Nick Sampson
Brad Hathaway, Potomac Stages
…(the production) is gifted with a luminous and vivid heroine in Stephanie Mumford (who) lifts the production from the merely interesting to the downright riveting at times.
