Plays by Ibsen.
The last one was Ghosts.A bit grim,the orphanage burning down came as some light relief.

I expect Skippy "squeaking" about it to the ranger helped ease the pain.

A Doll's House is an amazing comment on the plight of women, especially when you consider the period.
Scandinavian women coming to Italy are reminded to put their clocks back. 653 years.
Ibsen and Strindberg were Bergman's most common choices, followed by a lesser known Brit called Shakespeare and then Molière. There was a fascinating project running A Doll's House, Miss Julie and Scenes from a Marriage representing three stages in women's emancipation and three choices: escape, destruction or compromise. Sadly this was before the net, but there's the book A Project for the Theatre.
