A Dolls House New York Tickets
A Doll's House New York TicketsInspired by his friend Laura Smith's life, Henrik Ibsen wrote the play A Doll's House after Laura's life had taken a horrible turn. A Doll's House tells the story of Torvald Helmer, who is a lawyer at a bank, his wife Nora and the couple's three children. The play depicts Torvald as the ethical and responsible one while Nora portrays an irresponsible and pretty wife. Nora's irresponsibility takes serious consequences when it is found out that she committed fraud in order to save Helmer's life. When Helmer finds out what Nora has done, he is outraged by what this news will do to his reputation. This escalates to Nora leaving her husband and heading out into an uncertain world, now as a single woman. Since its premiere at Copenhagen's Royal Theatre on Dec. 21, 1879, A Doll's House has had showings throughout the world like Broadway's Palmer's Theatre and many more. If you are in the New York area, you can catch a viewing of A Doll's House at a local venue.
When Art Imitates LifeIbsen's friend Laura, who inspired the play, had many similarities to the character of Nora in A Doll's House. As with the play's character, Nora, Laura also committed fraud in hopes of curing her husband of tuberculosis. Wanting to pay off the illegal loan she had signed, Laura asked Ibsen if he would talk to his publisher about her work. When Ibsen refused to help her, she got the money by forging a check. Unlike the play, when Laura's husband Victor found out what she'd done, he not only divorced her but also had her placed into an asylum. A couple of years later, at the request of her husband, Laura returned to her family and ended up becoming a popular author. Ibsen began working on A Doll's House after Laura had been committed, a fate that hurt him greatly since he did not help her when she had asked. The impact that A Doll's House had on society during that time was more than just entertainment; the play was quite controversial as it dealt with the lack of opportunity for married women of that era, especially in Norway, to achieve self-fulfillment in a society dominated by men.
