A Doll’s House, Part 2 is a modern sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s iconic play A Doll’s House, considered by many to be the first modern feminist play. In the final scene, when told by her husband that her most sacred duties are to him and their children, heroine Nora Helmer shocked audiences by asserting her sacred duty to herself and walking out.
A Doll’s House, Part 2 picks up 15 years later when Nora returns. As she confronts her husband, daughter and longtime nanny, each character is forced to address their ideas about marriage, freedom, love, and gender roles. With both poignancy and humor, Hnath asks: in the century since Nora first took to the stage, how much has really changed for women?
