Henrik Ibsen, the father of modern drama, argued that everyone, man or woman, had a right to be who they wanted to be. In A Doll’s House, protagonist Nora epitomizes struggles against the constraints of social conformity as she confronts her identity and the state of her marriage. Though Ibsen was writing in the 19th century, his masterpiece remains just as relevant as when it was written. As Mark Lawson writes, “Our culture is in moral chaos, with inquiries, trials, and debates agonizing over what we should think about politics, money, journalism, medicine, and sex, themes to which Ibsen…urgently returned.” – The Guardian
