Nora Helmer is a vibrant young housewife who suffers from a crippling dependency on her husband, Torvald, of eight years who does all the thinking for both of them. In order to save him from a debt and to spare his masculine pride, Nora arranges a loan (without his knowledge and by forging a signature). When the crime is inevitably revealed, Torvald’s response sets into motion a series of events that call the very validity of their marriage into question, and Nora awakens to a sense of true self-awareness for the first time in her life. And in one of the most famous (and scandalous) climaxes in all of nineteenth century drama, Nora makes a choice that continues to be debated by audiences to this day.

Tickets are available at the door: $8 – Adults; $5-Senior Citizens; $4-Crowder Students/Employees; Free-Children ages 12 and under. The production is a comedy rated PG-13 due to language and content.
