A slammed door. An awkward favor. And no, you don’t need to see Part 1.
As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a young wife and mother leaves behind her family, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with an incredibly awkward favor to ask the people who she abandoned. Lucas Hnath’s bitingly funny sequel to Ibsen’s revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs that reveal in Nora’s world, much like our own, behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn’t just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.

Delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions…an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of “A Doll’s House” as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own.
