The play is significant for the way it deals with the fate of a married woman, who at the time in Norway lacked reasonable opportunities for self-fulfillment in a male-dominated world. It aroused a great sensation at the time,and caused a ¢¢¬…storm of outraged controversy that went beyond the theatre to the world. In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, A Doll's House held the distinction of being the world's most performed play that year. UNESCO has inscribed Ibsen's a A Doll's House on the Memory of the World Register in 2001, in recognition of their historical value.
