An new type of Ibsen

I found this press release from a production of this play in North Hollywood, California. Although there is not much information here, other then where the play opens and such, but I found the discription of this particular play of A Doll House interesting because of the setting. Instead of the orginal 1880s Norway, this production is set in 1950s America. A parellel is drawn between the two settings in terms of gender roles. The women of the 1950s had the same constraints as the women of the 1880s and were seen more as possessions than as individuals.
