Example text

You’re all the same. None of you think I can manage anything … serious. MRS LINDE. No, no. NORA. You think I don’t know how hard life is. MRS LINDE. But you’ve just told me yourself. Your problems. NORA. Fiddle. They were nothing. ) I haven’t told you the real one. MRS LINDE. What real one? NORA. You don’t take me seriously. You should. Aren’t you proud of all you did, all that hard work for your mother? MRS LINDE. I take everyone seriously. Of course I’m proud, I made my mother’s last months a little easier.

NORA (thoughtfully, with a light smile). One day. Perhaps. When I’m not quite such a pretty little thing. Don’t laugh. I mean when Torvald isn’t as smitten as he is now, when he’s tired of me dancing, reciting, dressing up. Then I may need something in reserve. ) Da, da, da. It’ll never happen. Well, Kristine? What d’you think of my great big secret? D’you still think I’m silly? No cares in all the world? Don’t think it’s been easy, meeting the payments on time, each time. Quarterly accounts, instalments – I can tell you all about that sort of thing.

Say it. NORA (hiding the macaroon-packet). Sh! HELMER comes out of his study, with his coat over his arm and his hat in his hand. NORA runs to him. Torvald, darling, did you get rid of him? HELMER. Yes, he’s gone. NORA. Let me introduce you. This is Kristine. She’s come to town. 58 HELMER. I’m sorry … Kristine … ? NORA. Mrs Linde, darling. Kristine Linde. HELMER. Oh yes. One of Nora’s schoolfriends? MRS LINDE. We knew each other once. NORA. Just imagine, she’s come all this way just to talk to you.
