A doll's house Wild Rose

Auditions: A Doll’s House

Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House first premiered in Denmark on December 21st, 1879: It shook the theatre world. Nora, a married woman, lacks self-fulfilment in a male dominated world. But determining her destiny disrupts society’s foundation.

But what happens when our Nora finds herself in present day Alberta? Does she face a similar dilemma? How have her options changed? And more importantly, does she choose a new beginning?
