About The Play

The Door Heard Around the World

One of the most transformative plays in the history of Western theatre, A Doll’s House has been electrifying audiences for over a century.  Nora, a seemingly naive young housewife, learns that her marriage is more hollow and fragile than the strong alliance she believed in. As her illusions come tumbling down around her, Ibsen questions to the roles society forces women into. When Nora finally strikes out on her own, it was the door slam heard around the world.

Facts About The Play

  • One of the ten most famous plays in the world

  • Inspired events in the life of Laura Kieler, celebrated Danish author, who never forgave Ibsen for using her life as fodder for his drama

  • Its examination of the role and treatment of women was scandalous when it premiered in 1879
