You thought it was over. It’s not. Nora returns to the family she left 15 years ago – what could possibly go wrong? A cutting-edge riff on the original classic that caused riots more than 100 years ago, “A Doll’s House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath opens at the Hippodrome Theatre on Friday, Jan. 11, with showtimes through Feb. 3.

“A Doll’s House, Part 2” is a visceral and quick-witted look at what happens when a woman defies societies expectations – and then comes back for more. “A Doll’s House, Part 2” is directed by Charlie Mitchell, playwright, University of Florida theatre professor and director.

“Back in the day ‘A Doll’s House’ was revolutionary,” Mitchell said. “For a woman to walk out on her life and not just her husband, but her children. It was called ‘a door slam heard all around the world.’ How interesting to see what happens when she comes back and how these characters still have so much unfinished business.”

You don’t have to have seen Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” which premiered in 1879 to “get it.” Mitchell says the play stands on its own, “You understand right away what happened in the past.”

This is Nora’s story.
