College Theatre presents

A groundbreaking modern masterwork by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen,'A Doll’s House' is the story of Nora Helmer, a young wife and mother married to Torvald, a recently promoted bank manager. The pair seem to have an idyllic life until a terrible secret from Nora’s past threatens to shatter her world and she begins to question everything. When it first Photo of characters from A Doll's House theatre productionpremiered in 1879, 'A Doll’s House' sent shockwaves throughout Europe and, nearly 150 years later, it continues to be as bold, brilliant and alive as ever.

The play’s universal themes of gender equality and what it means to have a true partnership in a marriage still resonate today, said Alicia Hall, adjunct threatre professor who is directing the play. 'Because of the challenge to perceived gender roles, ‘A Doll’s House’ struck a deep chord in audiences of the time and was viewed as highly controversial work,' said Hall. 'It’s one of the earliest plays to be centered around a female character, and the emerging women’s rights movement seized the play as a banner for women’s independence.'
