All of Henrik Ibsen's major characters, situations, and themes are in this short version. The dialogue has been made accessible for both actors and audience. And, of course, the ideas presented in the play are as potent and fascinating today as they were 130 years ago when Ibsen won worldwide attention with this play in which he showed that a husband and wife should live together as equals. Thomas Hischak wanted to present A Doll's House for several years, but the play was too long and talky for most groups. Thus, he wrote a one-act version that utilizes six actors, one simple interior set and a running time of approximately an hour. Each character has only one costume. The time period is flexible. The first production was presented without intermission, but one can easily be inserted. This version of A Doll's House was well received when presented at State University of New York College at Cortland, N.Y., in 2002.
