In 1879, Henrik Ibsen wrote one of the most controversial plays of all time: A Doll's House, in which Nora walks out on her husband and children with a feminist doorslam that reverberated worldwide for decades.
Fast forward to the 21st century: in A Doll's House, Part 2, the hot young playwright Lucas Hnath--author of The Christians, one of the most popular plays HPT has ever produced--has followed up with a highly modern play in which Nora must return fifteen years after her dramatic exit to face what she left behind.
The New York Times called the play, which uses modern (and sometimes strong) language, "smart, funny and utterly engrossing." The San Jose Mercury News called it "furiously smart and surprising." Nominated for eight 2017 Tony Awards, more than any other play that season.
A Doll's House, Part 2 is directed by Ken Webster and features Katherine Catmull, Tom Green, Sarah Chong Harmer, and Cyndi Williams.
