About the Show

“A Smart, funny and utterly engrossing play” – New York Times

“FIVE STARS. It keeps you hanging on each turn of argument and twist of knife. It’s dynamite.”  –  Time Out New York

Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 masterpiece took Europe by storm and attacked the social and cultural norms of its day. Nora Helmer is a young wife trapped inside a suffocating, loveless marriage. At the end of Ibsen’s classic play A Doll’s House, Nora makes the radical decision to walk away from her marriage and her children to pursue an independent life. Nora literally walks out the door and slams it behind her to announce her shocking departure. She plunges into a terrifying and thrilling life of freedom without boundaries.  

Lucas Hnath’s sharp-witted sequel A Doll’s House, Part 2 begins with a knock on that same door fifteen years later. Nora is back with a personal story of freedom and independence that is very modern and very familiar. What happens when Nora is forced to confront the people she chose to leave behind? 
 
Hnath writes fast, vibrant dialogue—much of it in a salty, modern vernacular that is witty, satirical and a joy to embrace. A Doll’s House, Part 2, which garnered eight Tony Award nominations, is a blistering and very funny exploration of marriage and the high cost of personal fulfillment.

NOTE:  Familiarity with the original play A Doll's House is entirely unnecessary to thoroughly enjoy this play!
