About A Doll's House

Nora and Torvald Helmer are living their dream life: happily married with children and security. When Nora risks her reputation to save her husband’s life, the consequences test the limits of their love. In an acclaimed new translation by Bryony Lavery, Ibsen’s powerful, groundbreaking classic about marriage, money, and equality remains as compelling and relevant as ever.

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission. Please note: This production includes the brief smoking of a cigar.

“I am thrilled to be back at the Huntington working on a play that so brilliantly exposes the challenges of marriage, and speaks with surprising eloquence to us. Ibsen is not only writing about a woman's need for independence, but about how we all struggle to be our genuine selves while meeting the needs of our society and our relationships.”— Melia Bensussen
