About the play

Fifteen years after Nora Helmer famously walked out of the door in order to pursue a more fulfilling life in Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House,” Nora is back in order to confront her past life. She is forced to face those she left behind - including her mother figure, Anne Marie; her daughter, Emmy; and her ex-husband, Torvald - after it is revealed that the divorce she asked for was not finalized. Since she left, Nora has done things that married women were unable to do, meaning that she has unknowingly broken laws. As Nora attempts to figure out the mess she’s in, she is confronted with the consequences of her actions: After Nora left, Anne Marie was left to pick up the pieces, Emmy grew up without a mother, and Torvald has been left to wonder what went wrong.

“A Doll’s House, Part 2” challenges the belief that Nora suffered a tragic death after she left in the original play. Instead, Hnath imagines a world in which Nora not only survives, she thrives in her new life. With a mixture of historically accurate and modern language, the play explores the concept of confrontation, facing consequences and what it means to be truly free.
