A Doll's House, Part 2
A co-production with the Royal Manitoba Theatre Centre
A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 By LUCAS HNATH
Directed by KRISTA JACKSON
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?
Tony nominated playwright Lucas Hnath has stunned audiences with his brilliant contemporary classic, which continues Nora’s story. A “smart, funny and utterly engrossing play” (The New York Times), A Doll’s House, Part 2 “delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, inequality and human rights" (Hollywood Reporter).
