About the Show

In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. Many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

Children should be 14 years of age or older to attend this performance.

Themes

  • This play is an imagined sequel to a much older play, written by a different person, in a different era, in a different part of the world. With all those differences in mind, there are themes and issues such as marriage, divorce, sexism, freedom and responsibility that are still relevant to today’s world. How do you think we’ve grown as a society since 1879, when the original play came out?
  • Nora, in the original play, chose to seek freedom and create her own life by leaving her husband and children. She did what she felt was best for her, but some feel that she was selfish. How do we know when we’re making choices selfishly? Is taking care of ourselves always at the expense of others?
