A Doll's House, Part 2 $13

Lucas Hnath

Published by Dramatists Play Service

1 Male 3 Female

One of the great Broadway hits of 2017

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" ~ NY Times

★★★★★ "If Ibsen's play is about suffocation, Hnath's is about airing things out. Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting - Nora, now a scandalous writer, needs Torvald's help to avoid being blackmailed by a judge - the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility ... keeps you hanging on each turn of argument and twist of knife ... lucid and absorbing the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility ... It's a slam dunk" ~ Time Out

"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" ~

"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" ~ Hollywood Reporter
