Quotes & Awards

  • “Actress Linda Purl shines as the title character leading a fine Hollywood cast in this L.A. Theatre Works 1997 live performance…The original three-act play made quite a worldwide splash in 1879, as it suggests that women might have lives and thoughts—and even borrow money—outside their husbands’ purview. Purl absolutely nails Nora’s final declaration to her husband, Torvald, played by the late David Dukes. Her plea that she can no longer be treated like a toy in a doll’s house is one of greatest theatrical monologues of all time.”

About the Author

Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906) was a major nineteenth-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet. He is often referred to as “the father of prose drama” and is one of the founders of modernism in the theater. His major works include Brand, Peer Gynt, An Enemy of the People, Emperor and Galilean, A Doll’s House, Ghosts, The Wild Duck, and The Master Builder. Several of his plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when European theater was required to model strict mores of family life and propriety. Ibsen’s work examined the realities that lay behind many façades, revealing much that was disquieting to many contemporaries. It utilized a critical eye and free inquiry into the conditions of life and issues of morality.
