A Doll's House
by Henrik Ibsen
The Oxford Playhouse 17 Oct - 21 Oct 2000
In the opening scene of Polly Teale's A Doll's House, Nora (Anne-Marie Duff) unfolds out of an impossibly small doll's house, like an overgrown butterfly, onto the stage. In an equally surprising and poignant final moment, she unhooks the walls of the set and walks out of the play.

"Romanticism to Realism is based on a graduate course taught in the School of Drama at Carnegie Mellon University in the fall of 2006."
THE REALIST CYCLE : A Doll House takes place at Christmas, the time of the death of the old year and the birth of the new. The themes of the play, explore beyond the dimensions of particular social issues with which the play long has been associated. These issues are only one component of the rich human drama opened up by the dialectical action.
"Turning Point" : "There are TWO couples in this play that will experience this 'turning point' of the year in radically different ways. One couple has the pagan names TORVALD (Thor) and NORA (Eleonora/Helen). They perform the pagan celebration: the Yule tree, the gifts, the tarantella dance, the feasting. In the last act they are heard dancing, in a room above, just before their world is about to be devastated. Below, are CHRISTINE and KROGSTAD, whose lives of sorrow, forgiveness, reconciliation, (embodying the Christian aspect of the season) move in the opposite direction from devastation to happiness."
