Ibsen's A Doll's House is one of the most widely debated plays, but which version of the play do we refer to--the original text, translations, stage presentation, radio, film or television adaptations? This study addresses these questions and examines how the choice of medium and directorial approaches have influenced the meaning of the play text. Comparative analysis of the text and performance is framed by biographical background to the play and its impact on later dramatists such as Strindberg and Shaw.

"...a great deal of fascinating and informative material..." Essays in Theatre "Tornqvist's analysis of the play's text...is generally sound and especially good on the play's structure." Joan Templeton, Scandinavian Studies "Tornqvist has written a book thatis accessible and valuable to theatre practitioners as well as scholars. It is at once a reference work and a guide-book. Tornqvist is at his best when he provides detailed analysis of the various treatments given to particular moments and scenes from the text. This book intelligently and thoroughly explores A Doll's House and scenes from the text. This book intelligently and thoroughly explores A Doll's House as a performance text by examining mulitlple approaches given to the text in performance." Michael Schurter, Theatre Studies
