A Doll’s House is a play studied by students around the world. A production ahead of its time, it questioned the traditional roles of men and women in the 19th-century. This message, while not well received at the time, was essential to the forward movement of theatre. A Doll’s House, Part 2, written 140 years later by Lucas Hnath, aims to answer the question of what happened where Henrik Ibsen’s classic play left off?
It’s been 15 years since Nora shut the door on her old life to start anew. In that time, she became an accomplished writer and enjoyed the freedom of a single woman in the late 1800’s. Nora’s new life comes into question when she finds out that her husband, Torvald, never filed the divorce papers. Now faced with losing everything, she must return to knock on the door she closed all those years ago to ask for a favor. Old wounds are opened, new relationships are made but, most importantly, everyone gets a chance at closure.
