Indicate in the subject line: A DOLL’S HOUSE / AEA Submission
NORA HELMER: Female. Mid 20s – early 30’s. Attractive, energetic, blooming-rose of a woman who whiles away her days as the dutiful wife to her well-off, business-man husband and their two children. Nora initially seems like a playful, naïve and frivolous child who lacks knowledge of the world outside her home, delighting in life’s small pleasures like sweets, gifts, colorful ribbons, etc. Through a series of increasingly demonstrative acts of small rebellion Nora comes to see the limitations and constraints of her position and her marriage, and finds the strength to free herself from her oppressive situation.
TORVALD HELMER: Male. Mid 30’s – early 40s. Nora’s husband. Masculine but not coarse or crass; was sickly in his early life, now Torvald delights in his good health, his new position at the bank, and in his position of authority as a husband. While kind, he treats Nora like a child, as a plaything or doll to be teased and admired. Very aware of society’s ideas and expectations of what it is to be a man, to be a husband, to head a family, Torvald is blind to the effect his controlling love has on Nora. Just as much a product of society as his wife.
DR. RANK: Male. Early to late 50’s. Torvald’s best friend and Nora’s confidante. A man of stature and class in the community at large; everyone would like to call him a dear friend. Unconcerned with what others think of him, especially after receiving what is essentially a death sentence from his doctors --- why bother with others’ perceptions now? Stoic, witty, urbane and ironic, RANK is a gentle but no-nonsense advisor to NORA, and harbors perhaps a secret hope that he could be closer to NORA than society (and her husband) would look well upon.
MRS. LINDE: Female. Early 30s – early 40. Nora’s childhood friend. Kristine Linde is a practical, down-to-earth woman who has lived a poverty-stricken life of hardship and burden, with little hope of advancement or happiness --- she is not, tho, pathetic. She is aware of her station and her circumstance and soldiers on, Sonya-like, in the face of adversity.
NILS KROGSTAD: Male. 40s A lawyer who went to school with Torvald and holds a subordinate position at Torvald’s bank. A decent family man driven to desperate (and unethical) measure to save his position at the bank. The lengths to which he will go to achieve this goal, and his willingness to allow NORA to suffer --- even given his dire situation --- call his character into question.
