CA Studio presents A Doll’s House

A Doll’s House, the classic play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, deals with the fate of a married woman who, like other women in 1880’s Norway, lacked reasonable opportunities for self-fulfillment in a male-dominated world. The play ignited controversy and caused “a storm of outrage” beyond the stage. Could this classic still be timely? Join them at the Biedenharn August 3, 4, 10, and 11 for CA Studio’s presentation of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House.
