A Doll’s House Part 2


Sharp, funny and filled with dynamic arguments that will make you question the institution of marriage and life itself!

Lucas Hnath’s stunning new drama begins 15 years after tired, family wife Nora decidedly walks out the front door and leaves behind her bewildered husband and three young children with the hope of crafting a new life for herself …

Now, in a whirlwind comeback, Nora’s hasty return has an urgent agenda, which will decidedly force her to confront her husband, daughter and even the housekeeper!

With a simple, but elegant décor by Pierre-Étienne Locas and beautiful contemporary music by composer and sound designer Christian Thomas, this gripping drama will certainly keep you on your toes. Part two was nominated for best play at the 2017 TONY AWARD®.

Director Caitlin Murphy leads a stellar cast that includes Sarah Constible as the insatiable Nora, Oliver Becker as her estranged husband, Ellie Moon as the determined but lovelorn daughter Emmy and Victoria Barkoff as the voice of reason, housekeeper Anne-Marie.

A Doll’s House Part 2 runs Nov 18 -Dec 09th at the Segal Center for Performing Arts .
