A Doll's House, Part 2
Laurie Metcalf, Chris Cooper, Jayne Houdyshell, and Condola Rashad star in a new play by Lucas Hnath.
ABOUT THE SHOW
In the final scene of Ibsen's 1879 ground-breaking 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?
Lucas Hanth’s play was commissioned by South Coast Rep in Costa Mesa, CA, which is also producing the work this spring.
