Publisher's Summary

A new recording of Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece, starring Calista Flockhart. Nora Helmer has everything a young housewife could want: beautiful children, an adoring husband, and a bright future. But when a carelessly buried secret rises from the past, Nora’s well-calibrated domestic ideal starts to crumble. Ibsen’s play is as fresh today as it was when it first stormed the stages of 19th-century Europe.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring: Calista Flockhart as Nora Helmer; Tony Abatemarco as Dr. Rank; Tim Dekay as Torvald Helmer; Jeannie Elias as Anne-Marie and Helene; Gregory Itzin as Nils Krogstad; Jobeth Williams as Mrs. Linde. Translated by Rolf Fjelde. Directed by Rosalind Ayres. Recorded before a live audience at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

What other book might you compare A Doll House to, and why?

A Doll House stands alone - a classic


Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

Nora - Calista Flockhart brings high energy to this role


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Nora's deception becomes apparent and is told,"Obviously you don't have the vaguest idea of what you have involved yourself in"


Any additional comments?

The tension builds inexorably, broken by humour and realisation
