Running since March 2017
Nora Helmer returns to the home she abandoned years ago in a new play that continues the story of Henrik Ibsen's most cherished work.

From the producers: 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?

Henrik Ibsen's "A Doll's House" originally premiered at the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1879. The play is significant for its critical attitude toward 19th-century marriage norms. It aroused great controversy at the time, as it concludes with the protagonist, Nora, leaving her husband and children because she wants to discover herself. In 2006, the centennial of Ibsen's death, "A Doll's House" held the distinction of being the world's most performed play for that year.
