A Staged Reading
Dr. Rank: age 45-60: longtime friend of Helmer, frequent confidant for and more than a little in love with Nora. A regular house-guest. Ill health, attributed to the excesses of his father.
Christine Linde: age 35-40. Former friend of Nora, recently returned to town after falling on hard times. Previously married with grown children. Now seeking employment, asking that Nora help her secure a position in Helmer's bank. Previously spurned Nils Krogstad.
Nils Krogstad: age 35-40: Clerk in Helmer's bank, and holder of a secret loan which Nora has been paying off, unknown to Helmer. Determined to keep his position in the bank; prepared to expose Nora's loan if he is let go. Previously pursued Mrs. Linde.
Anne Marie: age 50: Nanny/governess to the Helmer children; was Nora's nanny before that. Left her own child in care to undertake Nora's and her children's upbringing.
Helene: age 20's-30's: Maid to Helmer household. Compliant, efficient; perhaps a bit intimidated by Helmer, close to Nora.
Helmer children: (we will cast three children)
Ivar: age 7-8; "little man" of the house, rather precise, like his father
Robert: 6-7: still very much his mother's little boy; playful like her
Emmy: 5-6: precocious, feminine, easily woos Helmer, looks like Nora
