In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking 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?
Please be advised– A Doll’s House, Part 2 contains strong language and is intended for mature audiences.
“[A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights…as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own…With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong.”Hollywood Reporter.
