A classic drama AND its clever sequel...on the stage at TNT.
Two stories, which can easily stand alone, are being perfectly paired.
Ibsen's classic, adapted by Wilder, threw tradition out the front door when Nora walked away from her marriage and her family. Over a century later, Hnath's sequel brings Nora back home and looks at her situation with modern eyes. JOIN US to see one or both plays as part of our repertory production.
What does "In Repertory" mean?
Two plays performed in repertory (or "in rep") are produced by the same theater and run during the same time, but on an alternating schedule. By seeing these two plays in rep, the audience has the opportunity to experience how the stories intertwine.

About A Doll’s House
Nora’s life is a picture-perfect portrait, complete with a doting husband, gleeful children and the small pleasures of her 1870s Norwegian home. But underneath her wide-eyed demeanor lies a deceit that she fears will tear her family apart. As the consequences stack up to reveal deeper flaws in her relationship, she slams the door on her marriage to assert her independence in this heart-wrenching and gripping production.
About A Doll’s House, Part 2
Fifteen years later, Nora’s unexpected return cuts through the subtext to confront her decisions
head-on in this Tony Award-nominated, contemporary sequel. Asking for favors instead of forgiveness, the proudly independent woman demands help from the family she left behind. But as she hilariously
roasts the society she has shunned, her husband and children get their long-awaited chance to stand their ground. “Smart, funny and utterly engrossing” (The New York Times), this piece snappilyfilters
the still-prevalent pressures of motherhood and self-fulfillment through a modern perspective.
