Scene Text

Start: Kristine: How do you do, Nora?

Nora: How do you do--

Kristine: You don’t recognize me, I suppose.

End: Nora: [...] Oh, it’s a wonderful thing to be alive and be happy.

Kristine: There is the bell; perhaps I had better go.

Nora: No, don’t go; no one will come will come in here; it is sure to be for Torvald.
