Miss Julie takes place over a very short time interval in the kitchen of the Count's country house. Although the kitchen is the only room visible on stage, there are numerous references to the Count's rooms on the upper floor that allude to the social order ruling over the life of the inhabitants of the household. Thus, Strindberg's choice of the kitchen as the set of the play may be understood in terms of the hierarchy of social class found in society at the time.

This is the typical life of a standard wife at that time. Ibsen leads on the play, penetrating and unveiling Nora in a subtle way conveying a huge effect. At the beginning he illustrates Nora to be taking the most normal life, and Torvald to be the husband who goes to work, and earns the money to support his family - the usual patriarchal society of that time. Nora just seems to be like a doll, as perfect a wife and mother can be, and innocent too, as she is completely dependent on her husband.
