A Dollís House traces the awakening of Nora Helmer from her previously unexamined life of domestic, wifely comfort. Having been ruled her whole life by either her father or her husband Torvald, Nora finally comes to question the foundation of everything she has believed in once her marriage is put to the test. Having borrowed money from a man of ill-repute named Krogstad, by forging her fatherís signature, she was able to pay for a trip to Italy to save her sick husbandís life (he was unaware of the loan, believing that the money came from Noraís father). Since then, she has had to contrive ways to pay back her loan, growing particularly concerned with money and the ways of a complex world.

BWW Reviews: St. Louis Actors' Studio Presents A DOLL'S HOUSE
by Chris Gibson - Apr 19, 2010

Though elements of its plot has been pilfered by countless writers and filmmakers over the years, Henrik Ibsen's classic, A Doll's House, still manages to pack a punch today. The tale of a woman in a seemingly idyllic marriage who suddenly finds herself being extorted because of a risky decision she made in order to save her husband's life has been reworked into countless thrillers and Lifetime originals. It may well be the prototype of feminists plays, empowering its heroine with a sense of true purpose as she comes to grips with the reality that her 'perfect' marriage isn't all it's cracked up to be. The St. Louis Actors' Studio is presenting a tautly acted production of Ibsen's most famous, and controversial work, and it's must-see viewing. (more...)
