The setting of Ibsen's A Doll's House is in the late 1800's Norway. The play was published in 1879 and caused immediate controversy with its portrayal of housewife Nora and the decisions she makes that shook her family as well as the country.  The story unfolds in the livingroom of the apartment of Torvald and Nora Helmer. The opening scene begins on Christmas Eve and ends two evenings later as Nora exits, slamming the door behind her.
