A Doll's House, Part 2

by Lucas Hnath |
Directed by Timothy Near

After 15 years away, Nora Helmer has returned home. And now that she’s back, the heroine of Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House is taking no prisoners. This award-winning theatrical sequel crackles with razor-sharp humor that speaks directly to today’s audiences, giving new voice to its predecessor’s themes of marriage, fidelity and personal independence.

Running time: 1 hour and 35 minutes. Performed with no intermission.
