Ah, the good old days — when middle-class wives didn’t have to work outside the home, when their husbands treated them like another one of the children, always made to be happy and unaware of pesky things like finances and voting. But in the late 1800s, the Norwegian play A Doll’s House, written by Henrik Ibsen, speculated that females wanted more out of life and marriage. Nora, written by film legend Ingmar Bergman, updates and tightens the story for a new audience, but leaves the show’s still somewhat controversial ending entact. Stage Left Theater takes on the production, beginning this weekend and ending Nov. 24.
