(For production by Professional Groups, College/University Groups, Community Groups)

A DOLL HOUSE examines gender roles, social constraints and the power of secrets through the seemingly happy marriage of Nora and Torvald Helmer. The play is called A DOLL HOUSE instead of the traditional A DOLL’S HOUSE. It’s a more accurate translation of the Norwegian title ET DUKKEHJEM. When we buy our kids a house for them to use to play with dolls, we call it ‘a doll house’ – Norwegian children play with ‘a dukkehjem.’ Nora is Torvald’s doll, in a doll house, that is not her own.
