A Doll’s House is one of Henrik Ibsen’s best-known, and least understood, plays. Nora and Torvald Helmer seem to be happily married.  But Nora is keeping a secret which, when revealed, will disrupt their marriage completely.  Meanwhile, Nils Krogstad is doing the best he can to keep body and soul together, but is pressed by circumstances to make demands of Nora that will force her secret into the open.  By the end of the play, both Nora and Krogstad realize that, by stepping away from the Victorian conventions that bind them, they can create new lives for themselves.

Nora Helmer: 29 years old
Mrs. Christine Linde: 30 years old

AUDITION INFORMATION:
Auditions will consist of cold readings from our script of A Doll’s House.
We will NOT ask auditioners to prepare a monologue in advance.
On each of the two audition evenings, we will have three time slots:

7:00 to 7:45 pm
8:00 to 8:45 pm
9:00 to 9:45 pm

In each of these slots, we will schedule approximately 6-8 auditioners, both male and female, and will ask auditioners to do cold readings from the play in combination with other auditioners. We will NOT ask auditioners to audition by themselves.

If you wish to read our script of A Doll’s House before the audition, please contact Alex Hawkins, and you will be sent a copy of the play via
