A Doll's House, Part 2 by Lucas Hnath

Who’s that knocking at the door?

15 years after slamming the door on her marriage, leaving her husband and children behind, Nora’s come home. A changed woman, she’s being blackmailed by a judge, and she has an incredibly awkward favour to ask of the people she abandoned.

Inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s groundbreaking 1879 classic A Doll’s House, US playwright Lucas Hnath’s Tony Award-nominated Broadway hit is a smart new comedy that raises fascinating questions about family, marriage, responsibility, and freedom of choice.

The Street’s Artistic Director Caroline Stacey directs an outstanding cast featuring acclaimed comedian-actor Rachel Berger and PJ Williams (Diary of a Madman, The Chain Bridge, The Faithful Servant)  in this expertly crafted, brilliant contemporary classic. And no, you didn’t need to see Part 1.

Don’t miss your chance to see the most produced, most talked about play in America.

"I’m not the same person who left through that door."

Starring  Rachel Berger, PJ Williams, Camilla Blunden, Lily Constantine
