A Doll's House

A Doll's House
Fall, 2011
Written By: Henrik Ibsen
Directed By: Ellen Hemphill

Duke’s Theater Studies Department tells the story of one of the first Real Housewives of Modern Drama, as revolutionary and revealing today as it was over 130 years ago when Henrik Ibsen wrote A Doll's House.

Nora Helmer is moving up in the world. She has three adorable children, a doting husband whose promotion will secure a social and financial position for the family, and a close circle of friends who admire her charmed and charming life. But when an enemy threatens to expose a carefully guarded secret, Nora’s artificially perfect life unravels.  Only when it looks like she will lose everything does she realize what is truly important: her self-worth.
