140 years ago Henrik Isben’s play A Doll’s House was first staged. It’s become one of the most produced works worldwide, but not without controversy: the play ends with the female protagonist leaving her husband and young children. Author Wendy Swallow wanted to explore what Nora Helmer does next as a divorced and ostracized woman in the late 19th and early 20th Century. On The Point, we talk with Swallow about her novel Searching for Nora, After the Doll’s House.
Wendy Swallow will discuss Searching for Nora on Saturday December 14th at the Snow Library in Orleans.
