"A Doll House” is one of the most produced plays in the contemporary repertoire. It explores marriage norms and feminism in a series of revelations and realizations that rock the main characters’ world.
 
The play was first performed in 1879 and is still very relevant today. Ibsen’s work established slice-of-life realism as a viable style in the theatre. He puts the issue of women’s rights front and center on the world stage with “the door slam heard ‘round the world.”
 
Directed by Stephanie Ross, “A Doll House” features talented Alison Williams and Jake Hammond in the lead roles of Nora and Torvald Helmer.
 
The play is set in 1879 on Christmas Eve in a large town on the seacoast of Norway. Nora is a young wife happily married to a successful bank manager with three healthy, happy children. She believes in the genuineness of her husband Torvald’s love and devotion; nevertheless, she feels compelled to keep from him the knowledge that she borrowed a large sum of money to pay for treatment of his Tuberculosis. 
 
The Helmers’ secure, comfortable home life unravels when the lawyer-turned-loan shark, whom Nora borrowed the money from and who works at Torvald’s bank, threatens to expose her secret to her husband. When Nora’s secret finally comes out, Torvald’s reaction is not the one she had expected...
