A Doll's Life is the musical sequel to Ibsen's play A Doll's House. The show focuses on Nora and her experiences when she leaves home and heads for Christiania, as Oslo was known in 1879. Borrowing the fare from a young violinist, Otto, she takes the train to Christiania, where she accepts work in a cafe and soon becomes involved not only with Otto, but Eric Didrickson, the wealthy owner of shipping lines and fish canneries, and Johan Blecker, a lawyer, as well. Throughout the show, scenes in her new life mingle with intermittent flashbacks to the one she left behind.
