A powerful cry for individual conscience in a world of duplicity and betrayal, A Doll’s House features in it’s heroine Nora Helmer one of the richest and most complex female characters in all theater. Nora has everything a woman of her era could possibly want-a doting husband, two bright children, and a promising future. But living like a toy in a dollhouse is not every woman’s chosen existence. When Nora discovers a side of her husband and marriage that horrifies her, she must make a choice: to suffocate inside the constrictions of her domestic role, or to become a woman in control of her own destiny. Still startlingly relevant more than 100 years after its debut, Ibsen’s groundbreaking drama offers no easy conclusions or solutions.
