A Doll's House Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


There's not a whole lot of sex-talk for most of A Doll's House. This isn't particularly surprising, since it's set in the Victorian era. We get one pretty flirtatious scene between Dr. Rank and Nora, but most of the innuendo is buried in talk of flesh colored stockings. (Scandalous!) The last scene begins with Torvald being all drunk and turned-on, but Nora quickly shuts him down. For the most part, the play is appropriate for general audiences.
