A Doll’s House, Part 2
August 1 @ 7:30 pm - August 3 @ 7:30 pm
The 2019 Summer Theatre Festival at The Playhouse at White Lake (formerly Howmet Playhouse) happens every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from July 11 through August 24! All shows begin at 7:30pm (unless otherwise noted).
August 1 -3, it’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath and directed by Natalie Carmolli.
As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a young wife and mother leaves behind her family, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with an incredibly awkward favor to ask the people who she abandoned. Lucas Hnath’s bitingly funny sequel to Ibsen’s revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs that reveal in Nora’s world, much like our own, behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn’t just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.
