‘A Doll’s House’ is the story of a married woman’s struggle for personal freedom. The play opens with scenes of domestic idyll: a respectable husband doting on his beautiful, winsome young wife. However, when it is revealed that Nora has committed a crime in order to preserve her husband’s good reputation, cracks begin to appear in that timeless façade of the bourgeois happy family, and the story becomes about Nora’s compulsion to extract herself from her false paradise. Only by paying close attention to the characters’ behaviour can the audience come to fully understand the extent to which what they say belies what they mean, and their means of coping with the conflict between their own desires and society’s expectations.
