The climax of the play would be when Nora decides to leave her husband Torvald and their children behind.  This is clearly the highest moment of tension in the play.  Everything up until that point builds the tension until the reader knows that Nora will be making a very important decision.  It is only towards the very end that we know what that decision is.  She has had enough of Torvald's complete disregard of her importance to the household and to him and their children.
