Tabor to present intriguing drama
A story about a wife, husband, and a scandalous secret will be the focus of Tabor College’s spring drama, “A Doll’s House.”
The play, which takes place in Norway in 1895, tells the story of Nora Helmer, who is keeping a scandalous secret from her husband, Torvald. When her secret is discovered, her identity, and that of her husband, crumble under the pressure.
“Ibsen believed that institutions should exist to serve individuals, not the other way around,” Tabor theater director Laurel Koerner said. “His writing explores the subjects of marriage, gender roles, and societal expectations.”
Molly Wiebe Faber plays Nora, and says the role has been a challenge.
“She’s kind of this emotional tornado, and I hope the audience can pick up on that,” Wiebe Faber said. “She takes her emotions to extremes and I think that’s really challenging as an actor to play, but fun for the audience to watch.”
The drama will be presented at 7:30 p.m. March 8 through 11 in the theater lab in the Lohrenz building on Tabor campus.
Cost is $6 for adults and $4 for students. Those interested in tickets may call (620) 947-3121 ext. 1033 or visit tabor.edu/springtheater.
