Overview


Synopsis

Ibsen's A Doll's House is a revolutionary classic. The play was integral in establishing realism as a theatrical form, and continues to be a provocative portrayal of a woman suffering in a man's world. At first, it seems Nora Helmer, lives a wonderful life with her wealthy husband and children. When Nora must forge a note in order to save her husband's life, however, things change. Instead of being grateful, her husband Torvald dismisses her sacrifice, devoting his focus entirely to his own reputation. With her fairy tale life destroyed, Nora ends up leaving her husband and her children in an attempt to discover life's real truths.
