In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?
Featuring Pamela W. Allen, Bob Cohen, Lorry Lepaule, and Roxy Semans
“[A] smart, funny and utterly engrossing play…Hnath approaches what might seem like a hubristic project with the humility and avidity of an engaged Everyreader. A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 gives vibrant theatrical life to the conversations that many of us had after first reading or seeing its prototype…” —NY Times.
NOTE: Familiarity with the original play A Doll’s House is entirely unnecessary to thoroughly enjoy this play!
