Lucas Hnath’s award-winning twist on one of the most celebrated and controversial plays of all time focuses on the nucleus of a family as it navigates the nuances of the very concept of “family”. Nora’s sudden departure from her home was cause enough for A Doll’s House to be banned originally. It has sparked debate and controversy for over a century. It has been a quintessential foundational example of women’s rights and equality arguments. It has been taught and dissected a million ways. But how noble was Nora’s central epiphany? Was it sacrifice or selfishness? What is left in the wake of her exit? Who suffers the consequences of her decisions?
The cast features last year’s Three Tall Women (Jeannine Thompson as Nora, Maggie Gilkes as Anne-Marie, and Maggie Alger as Emmy) as well as last season’s Falstaff (Patrick O’Lear). Costumes are designed by Bailey Boudreau with set and lights by Maggie Gilkes and Jackson Abohasira. Boudreau also directs the production, with Alanna Elling serving as stage manager.
