Drama: 3f, 1m
From the back cover:
In the final scene of Ibsen's 1879 groundbreaking 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?
"[A] smart, funny and utterly engrossing play... Hnath approaches what might seem like a hubristic project with the humility and avidity of an engaged Everyreader. A Doll's House, Part 2 gives vibrant theatrical life to the conversations that many of us had after first reading or seeing its prototype..." --The New York Times
"...lucid and absorbing... Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting...the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility." --Time Out New York
"Hnath's inspired writing, which endows each character with an arsenal of fastballs, curveballs and spitballs, keep[s] us disarmingly off-balance. He's an uncommonly gifted parodist. For all its seriousness, A Doll's House, Part 2 is suffused with a contagious bemusement." --Deadline.com
"[A Doll's House, Part 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality and human rights...as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll's house as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own. ...With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong." --The Hollywood Reporter
