A Doll's House
Time and Location
Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece.
English language version by Simon Stephens
Directed by Evan Mueller.
A story so controversial in its time that party guests were asked not to discuss it for fear of starting a fight, lauded by playwright George Bernard Shaw for challenging societal norms, Henrick Ibsen’s play features Nora Helmer: a woman in the role of a typical housewife, treated like a doll, harboring a secret debt for saving her husband’s life. Her debtor, now an employee to her husband, threatens to reveal her secret to her husband in order to save his own job. Nora finds herself faced with a difficult moral dilemma between the sacred values of her marriage and family versus her independence.
