Doll House by Henrik Ibsen Directed By Professor Roger Bechtel Thursday – Saturday October 27 – 29, 2011 8pmDoll House by Henrik Ibsen

Presented by The Department of Theater and Dance

Daddy's in his study, Mama's decorating the Christmas tree, the kids are with Nanny, and all's right with the world. Or is it? In Ibsen's classic study of marriage and money, a dark secret, spiteful pride, and the laws of commerce combine to shatter the illusion of Nora and Torvald's marital bliss. When faced with the truth of what it means to be a woman in 1879, will Nora continue to play house? From its earliest performances, Doll House was hailed as a penetrating look at the subjugation of women, and, in its explosive treatment of individual freedom and familial responsibility, it remains just as provocative today.
