A Doll’s House, Part 2 Theatre Production

Please join the Theatre Department for the first production of the 2020-2021 season – A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 by Lucas Hnath, directed by David Charles Goyette, Associate Professor of Theatre.

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?

“[A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights…as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own…With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong.” —Hollywood Reporter.
