A SLAMMED DOOR.
AN AWKWARD FAVOR.
NO, YOU DIDN'T NEED TO SEE PART 1.
As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a wife and mother leaves her family behind, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with a favor to ask of the people she's abandoned. Written in 2017, Lucas Hnath's bitingly funny modern sequel to Ibsen's revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs. We see that in Nora's world, behind every opinion there is a person — and a slammed door isn't just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.
This production has adult themes and language.
Performances run 90 minutes without intermission.
