Character Descriptions: 

Actors need to be able to convincingly portray characters’ age ranges.  

The role of Torvald has been cast.  

 

Nora (female, mid 40s–early 50s): Smart, clever, witty, passionate about her decision to leave, but blithely unaware of the impact it has had on the other characters. 

 

Ann Marie (female, 60s–70s): Nora’s dedicated nanny, who assumed the role of Torvald’s housekeeper and parental figure to their three children after Nora walked out. Uneducated formally, but sharp, perceptive, practical, and always willing to speak her mind.  

 

Emmy (female, late teens–early 20s): Nora’s daughter. Hasn’t seen her mother since she was three. An extremely poised, confident young woman. She upholds the institution of marriage as strongly as her mother disparages it.
