by Lucas Hnath, dir. Wesley Longacre
January 30th, 2022 – February 28th, 2021
“[A] smart, funny and utterly engrossing play…Hnath approaches what might seem like a hubristic project with the humility and avidity of an engaged Every reader. A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 gives vibrant theatrical life to the conversations that many of us had after first reading or seeing its prototype…” —NY Times. “…lucid and absorbing…Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting…the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love, and responsibility.” —Time Out NY. “Hnath’s inspired writing, which endows each character with an arsenal of fastballs, curveballs, and spitballs, keep[s] us disarmingly off-balance. He’s an uncommonly gifted parodist. For all its seriousness, A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 is suffused with a contagious bemusement.” —Deadline.com. “[A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2] delivers explosive laughs while also posing thoughtful questions about marriage, gender inequality, and human rights…as much an ingenious elaboration and deconstruction of A Doll’s House as a sequel, and it stands perfectly well on its own…With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong.” —Hollywood Reporter.
