“A SMART, FUNNY AND UTTERLY ENGROSSING PLAY” BY LUCAS HNATH
DIRECTED BY JAMES DOUGLASS

MARCH 7-9 AND 14-16  AT 7 PM AND MARCH 17, 2019 AT 2 PM

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?

“…lucid and absorbing…Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting…the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility.” —Time Out NY.

“[A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights…as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own…” --Hollywood Reporter
