One of the many great things about theatre is that it can cause audiences to question the beliefs they already hold to either strengthen or disband them.  “A Doll’s House” is an excellent example of one of these shows, forcing audiences to challenge their ideas of a husband and wife’s place in a marriage since its first performance in 1879.  The overarching theme of Norah growing into her own person and leaving behind the people trying to control her is one that is just as relevant and relatable today as it was when Ibsen wrote it.  Two traits of great theatre are its universality and its ability to make its audience think, and “A Doll’s House” excels in those categories.  Most of the action of the show is dialogue-based, which makes it harder for younger audiences with shorter attention spans, but “A Doll’s House” is a vastly rewarding show for performers, readers, and older audiences alike.
