It’s Christmas in a small Norwegian town and Nora Helmer excitedly plans surprises and presents for her family and friends.
But beneath the surface of this happiness and domestic bliss lurks a secret that Nora has kept from her husband for eight years. On Christmas Eve a stranger calls who threatens to reveal this secret, casting a shadow over her marriage and transforming the Helmer’s lives forever.
A beautifully crafted, exhilarating play, it aroused much controversy in it’s day – and still does now – by challenging the question of family and society and whether we must put these ahead of ourselves, ahead of our development as individuals, even if we stand to be destroyed by so doing.
