August 1 -3, it’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath and directed by Natalie Carmolli.

As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a young wife and mother leaves behind her family, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with an incredibly awkward favor to ask the people who she abandoned.  Lucas Hnath’s bitingly funny sequel to Ibsen’s revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs that reveal in Nora’s world, much like our own, behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn’t just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.

Theater Box Office hours are 1:00pm – 5:00pm weekdays, and one hour before curtain. Season Passes are your best value.  Make a single purchase, and then pick and choose the plays you wish to attend. Single show tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for students.
