Doll's House

Book cover
By: (1828-1906)

"Doll's House" by Henrik Ibsen is a powerful play that explores the complexities of marriage, gender dynamics, and societal expectations in 19th century Norway. The protagonist, Nora, is a fascinating character who starts out as a seemingly naive and submissive wife, but gradually reveals herself to be a woman of strength and independence. The play's exploration of the constraints placed on women during this time period is both heartbreaking and thought-provoking.

Ibsen's writing is sharp and incisive, capturing the nuances of human relationships with precision. The dialogue crackles with tension as secrets are revealed and relationships are tested. The climax of the play is both shocking and satisfying, leaving the audience with much to ponder about the nature of love, freedom, and sacrifice.

Overall, "Doll's House" is a timeless classic that continues to resonate with audiences today. Ibsen's exploration of the role of women in society is as relevant now as it was when the play was first performed, making it a must-read for anyone interested in the complexities of human relationships and societal norms.

Book Description:
Published in 1879, this play was a bombshell, exposing the tragic hypocrisy of Victorian like middle class marriage. The play is significant for the way it deals with the fate of a married woman, who at the time in Norway lacked reasonable opportunities for self-fulfillment in a male-dominated world. - A wife was almost literally a bird in a cage for display by the husband. Note that this is a solo reading of the entire play by one person. We have an excellent dramatic reading of this play in our catalog also if a more traditional performance is more to your taste.)
