Lucas Hnath’s Tony-nominated A Doll’s House, Part 2 picks up where Ibsen’s groundbreaking play left off. Fifteen years ago, Nora left her husband, Torvald. In the years since, the two have had no contact. Nora has become a successful feminist writer, while Torvald continued to work at the bank and raised their children on his own. This play delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights. It is “an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel.” How much, in a century-plus, has life changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong?
