Genesis Fellow Carrie Cracknell directs Ibsen at the Young Vic
Friday, 29 June 2012
Carrie Cracknell directs her first production as Genesis Fellow at the Young Vic, a compelling new English-language version of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, which runs from 29 June to 28 July.
Carrie has teamed up with Olivier Award-winning playwright Simon Stephens and Tony Award-winning designer Ian MacNeil to create this much-anticipated new staging of the 19th century masterpiece. The cast includes Hattie Morahan (BBC’s Sense and Sensibility, Outnumbered) and Dominic Rowan (Law & Order UK, Royal Court’s The Village Bike).
Carrie Cracknell began her Genesis Fellowship in April 2012 and over the next two years she will work closely with Artistic Director David Lan to develop her craft and mentor directors on the Young Vic Directors Programme.
Carrie was formerly artistic director of the Gate Theatre (2007–2011), where her productions included Elektra (a co-production with the Young Vic), Breathing Irregular, Hedda, I Am Falling, Armageddon, Shoot/Get Treasure/Repeat and The Sexual Neuroses of Our Parents.
