Heinrich Ibsen’s  A Doll’s House ends with Nora Helmer leaving her husband and children for the purpose of finding out who she is outside the tight confines of her marriage.  This ending shocked 19th century audiences, and the play was often changed to have Nora remain with her family.    In some places, like Britain, A Doll’s House was simply banned outright.

In your opinion, what purpose was served by having A Doll’s House censored, either by being rewritten or banned?  Is censorship of a theatrical or cinematic work ever permissible?  If so, under what conditions?  If not, why not?  Explain your position as clearly and thoroughly as you can and defend it against people who might disagree with you.
