A Doll’s House Part 2 is playing on the main stage at Barrington Stage until July 28. In 1879 A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen opened in Copenhagen, Denmark. When Nora Helmer left her husband and children at the end of the play, the slamming door was heard around the world since it dealt with the changing role of women. Nora had taken a loan illegally to pay for a trip to benefit her husband’s health. When she was threatened with blackmail, her husband Torvald turned on her, only to accept her action when the threat was removed.
In 2017, Lucas Hnanth picked up the story imagining what happens fifteen years later when Nora returns home. This sequel is generating a great deal of discussion as did the original play.
