Editorial Reviews

USA Today
New, raw, gut-twisting and gripping. Easily the hottest drama this season.
Wall Street Journal
Bold, brilliant and alive.
Time
A thunderclap of an evening that takes your breath away.
Associated Press
The stuff of Broadway legend.
From the Publisher
"In [Wilder's] A Doll's House . . . the relationship of dialogue to action is very special, like nothing that had been heard on stage before."—David Hammond, PlayMakers Repertory Company
The New Statesman

Meyer's translations of Ibsen are a major fact in one's general sense of post-war drama. Their vital pace, their unforced insistence on the poetic centre of Ibsen's genius, have beaten academic versions from the field.
Evening Standard

A powerful statement of [Ibsen's] radical beliefs about gender, the folly of idealism and the nature of modern love.
