A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen is one of his famous plays. It was published on December 14, 1879, and was first performed in Copenhagen on December 21, 1879. The female protagonist is Nora Torvald – the last person to escape the status of the “little doll” of her husband. The play was so controversial that Ibsen had to write the second ending which he called “a formidable insult” to use only when necessary. The play has long been a landmark in the fight against women’s oppression and human rights in general.
