Opens This Friday:

A Doll's House, Part 2

By Lucas Hnath

Directed by Susan Erickson

Playing in revolving repertory with A Doll's House through November 17.

Fifteen years ago, 27-year-old Nora Helmer left her husband, her children, and her home. What becomes of her? According to A Doll's House, Part 2, for a long time she lives in an abandoned shack. She doesn't speak for two years, vowing to stay silent until her voice is no longer that of her husband's . . . or her father's. She then finds her true self. Her voice tells her that:

"Marriage is cruel,
and it destroys women's lives"

She writes, under a pseudonym, a novel about a woman feeling oppressed, controlled, and betrayed in her marriage. She becomes a sensation, writing more books telling women to leave abusive marriages. But she is now in severe legal trouble. A judge has discovered her true identity. Unbeknownst to her, she is still married to Torvald.

It is now 15 years later; there's a knock at the door. Nora returns. She needs Torvald to file for divorce. This sequel, full of twists and turns, is powerful and highly entertaining, bathed in ache and humor

.
October 4-November 17, 2019. See rotating repertory schedule below..

Tickets: $24.

A Doll's House is "[A] beautifully presented nail-biter of a drama"

Posted: October 10, 2019.
"The elaborate set of the Helmer's home by Ryan Jason Cook is one of the best I've seen at any theatre in town. The costumes by Carolyn Hogan are just wonderful.... The casting is excellent, from Nora through all the major and minor characters.... You can see Nora's entire inner world of conflict and strain.... [A] beautifully presented nail-biter of a drama." (-Rob Spiegel for Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews)
