At the climax of Henrick Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, A Doll’s House, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband, children, and community, and begin a new life on her own. Nora’s famous door slam ushered in the modern age of world drama. In his award-winning Broadway debut, A Doll’s House, Part 2, playwright Lucas Hnath writes a play for our time, picking up the story 15 years after 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? Brimming with contemporary wit, intellectual complexity, and emotional authenticity, this play will be adored by those familiar with Ibsen’s original and loved by everyone else. A Doll’s House, Part 2, directed by Karin Hendricks (PCPA’s 2019, The Wolves), plays in the Severson Theatre August 20 – September 6.
