IBSEN’S A DOLL HOUSE EXPLORES INTRICACIES OF MARRIAGE

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The powerful drama, A Doll House, is being presented by the Viterbo University Theatre Arts Department in the La Croix Black Box Theatre Thursday through Monday, Nov. 15-19.

Perhaps Henrik Ibsen’s most controversial work, A Doll House has been challenging audiences and scholars since its debut in 1879. Championed early on by the British playwright George Bernard Shaw as a "feminist" play, Ibsen himself asserted that the crux of the play is the conflicting goals and values of Nora and Torvald Helmer. Passionately in love, this very normal couple struggles to fit their relationship into the modern middle-class conception of marriage.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $9. Call the Viterbo University Box Office at 608-796-3100 for more information.
