Further InformationAlso played in Riverdale. Was performed 200 times in rural towns in South Africa. The tour ended in October 1929. The children of Torvald and Nora were played by locally recruited children. The company initially used Ibsen’s original ending, but eventually switched to the alternative, reconcilable ending in which Nora stays.
