The Dolls House

It is always a joy to put together a small set of specific costumes for evocative plays like The Doll’s House.

With characters named Torvald, Krogstad and Dr Rank, it is a delight to imagine them and the kind of clothing they would wear and easy to select a suitable costume ensemble from our massive stock of period clothing items.

The Dolls House is set in Norway in 1879 with main character Nora secretly borrowing a large sum of money to aid her husband recover from an illness. Her husband Torvald calls her his doll and upon his recovery becomes a bank director.

Imagine Nora’s horror when she discovers that the first task Torvald undertakes in his new role, is to fire Nils Krogstadt, the man from whom she had borrowed the money.
