WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this production, the men, Torvald, Rank, and Krogstad, are the same height as the children. The dollhouse symbolizes a man's world where only doll-like women, who allow their men to feel grand, can hope to live in it. It also symbolizes the world of patriarchy; the world in which a woman never fits. Both Torvald and Nora are trapped in a meta-narrative, playing out an illusion of male power. Both pay the price: the death of love.
