    About Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House

    A Doll's House is a modern Scandinavian classic written in 1879 by renowned Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen and is regarded as a modern tragedy with themes of naturalism and realism. The three-act play received its world premiere at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark on 21 December 1879 and is set in an unspecified town in Norway in 1879. The story centres on a married woman named Nora Helmer who lives an unfulfilling life as a mother of three playing out society's conventions that prescribe women to be mere housewives without many opportunities for self-fulfilment.

    Ibsen's piece is interpreted as a feminist play and it caused quite the stir at the time of its premiere, having made headlines in newspapers all around the world. Hardly anyone could fathom the play's subject matter as ever being a cause for controversy in modern-day Scandinavia, a region widely considered to be progressive and a blueprint for building a functioning society.
