In the final scene of Henrik Ibsen's 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, Nora Helmer famously slammed the door on her marriage and family life, leaving her husband and children behind. What happened to the iconic heroine next? This bitingly funny sequel imagines her 15 years later, knocking on the same door, as a successful writer and independent woman. A skeleton from her past has her returning home to the one man who can help her: her not-quite ex-husband. Nora finds that her husband, daughter, and even her long-suffering maid, have some choice words upon her unexpected return. This smart and sophisticated new comedy raises fascinating questions about marriage and the ways the roles of women have – and have not – changed.
One of the hottest plays in America! You don’t need to know A Doll’s House to enjoy this Tony-nominated sequel! “Smart, funny, and utterly engrossing!” –New York Times
