Characters:

Nora Helmer (F 25-30) Nora is the central character of the play and married to Torvald Helmer. At first, Nora is presented as playful, childlike, and naive to the ways of the world. Small acts of rebellion and exposed secrets indicate she is not as happy or innocent as she appears. She eventually realizes her role in her marriage and finds the strength to leave.

Torvald Helmer (M 25-35) Nora’s husband. He is proud of his new position at the bank as well as his authority over his wife. He does not see Nora as an equal but rather as a childlike doll to be possessed. Interestingly, his behavior toward Nora is both kind and patronizing. Social status is very important to Torvald.

Nils Krogstad (M 25-35) A lawyer who went to school with Torvald and now holds a subordinate position at the same bank. A contradictory character; Krogstad is willing to use seedy tactics to get what he needs, although he is sympathetic. An unconventional villain.

Christina Linde (F 25-30) Nora’s childhood friend, Christina has recently arrived in town seeking employment. She is a bit different from Nora; reasonable and capable of maintaining sensibility. She has been struggling with poverty for several years. She and Krogstad had a romantic past.

Dr Rank (M 30-45) Torvald’s best friend and everyday visitor to the Helmers. He has contracted a critical illness and is at the end of his life. He has harbored intimate feelings for Nora which he expresses.

Anna (F 50-65) Nanny to the three Helmer children. She had also been Nora’s nanny. A kind-hearted woman.

Helmer Children – Bob, Emmy and Ivar. The eldest is 7. The children are seen very briefly, mostly during a game of hide and seek.
