Of all Ibsen’s plays A Doll’s House(1879)is the most read in Ghana but rarely performed. This study looks at the only performance of A Doll’s House in Ghana with analysis of the director’s interpretation. It also traces the teaching of the play in two main universities of the arts in Ghana.It further gathers the perception of readers of the play. Issues of gender and culture make the core of my analysis and also those gathered on the field. Particular attention is paid to motifs and symbolic representations of ideas by the playwright and how
they are translated and used in a different cultural setting.Further, Nora’s symbolic slamming of the door is examined.
