Written in 1879, Ibsen’s A Doll’s House is a landmark of modern drama. In a time of financial desperation, a young wife makes a dangerous decision, taking an illegal risk to save her husband’s life. Years later, her secret comes back to haunt her, and its revelation shakes the foundations of her entire world. A Doll’s House continues the Globe’s Classics Up Close series, which takes dramatic masterworks out from behind the proscenium arch, allowing audiences to experience great drama in new and often unexpected ways.
