More about A Doll’s House Part 2 at the Belfry:
In 1879, when Nora left her husband and children at the end of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, her door slam reverberated around the world, creating a storm of controversy; much of it focussed on Ibsen’s clarion call for gender equality.
Hnath’s stunning new drama begins with a knock on that same door 15 years later, as Nora returns with an urgent request, confronting husband, daughter and the woman who raised her children. Layered and very current, A Doll’s House, Part 2 was nominated for the 2017 Tony Award – Best Play.
