Ibsen Revisited

One of the most important works in theatre history gets a sequel in 2017, when A Doll's House, Part 2 debuts on Broadway. Written by Lucas Hnath (The Christians), this new play imagines Nora Helmer returning to her family, years after she walked out on them in the climatic moments of Ibsen's 1879 masterpiece. Held up as both a milestone for playwriting and women's rights, A Doll's House is certainly a hard act to follow, yet the fact that producer Scott Rudin is premiering Part 2 on Broadway suggests that Hnath work is something special.

Following her Tony-nominated turn opposite Bruce Willis in Misery, Laurie Metcalf returns to the Broadway stage in the lead role of Nora. The starry supporting cast includes Oscar winner Chris Cooper (Adaptation), Tony winner Jayne Houdyshell (The Humans) and Tony nominee Condola Rashas (The Trip to Bountiful). Tony winner Sam Gold (Fun Home) directs.

What is A Doll's House, Part 2 About?

A sensation upon its initial publication, Ibsen's A Doll House attacked the social and cultural norms of its day by telling the story of Nora Helmer, a woman trapped inside a suffocating, loveless marriage to bank manager Torvald. All her life Nora has existed as nothing more than a piece of property for a man, first her father and now her husband. She realises that to truly become her own person she must strike out on her own, and so leaves her husband and children in the play's final moments, slamming the door behind her.

A Doll's House, Part 2 resumes the action years later with a knock on the Helmer's front door. Standing on the threshold is none other than Nora. Why is she back? And how will the family she left behind react to her sudden reappearance?
