CANADIAN PREMIERE

“So endlessly stimulating…stirs the heart even as it invigorates the mind…” —BROADWAY NEWS

Smart, funny and utterly engrossing…” —THE NEW YORK TIMES

A culture-defining drama revisited.

In 1879, when Nora left her husband and children at the end of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House, her door slam reverberated around the world, creating a storm of controversy; much of it focussed on Ibsen’s clarion call for gender equality.

Hnath’s stunning new drama begins with a knock on that same door 15 years later, as Nora returns with an urgent request, confronting husband, daughter and the woman who raised her children.

Layered and very current, A Doll’s House, Part 2 was nominated for the 2017 Tony Award – Best Play.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PLAY
It is simply stunning! The intellectual excitement is palpable, as arguments around gender, marriage and family are turned upside down and inside out. —Michael Shamata
