It’s been 15 years since Norwegian house wife Nora Helmer slammed the door on her husband, three children and the rest of married life in Ibsen’s sober 19th-century drama. Now she’s back in Hnath’s darkly comic Broadway darling. In her new life as an incendiary feminist writer, Nora is being blackmailed by a judge and needs her estranged husband’s help. But her family has a few grievances they want to air first. With razor-sharp dialogue, A Doll’s House, Part 2 imagines the aftermath of Nora’s infamous exit— provoking questions about marriage, gender inequality, and the meaning of liberation in often hilarious and insightful ways.

"A triumph! Smart, funny and utterly engrossing!” New York Times

REVIEWS

Solid script, performances light up sequel to Ibsen’s ‘A Doll’s House’

"The show is dense and laced with nuance not found in Ibsen’s 1879 provocative, unvarnished examination of gender inequality. Assumptions that seem so solid in this update often turn out to be far more complicated than expected."  - PROVIDENCE JOURNAL  read the review >
