A Doll’s House, Part 2
252 West 45th Street
In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 ground-breaking masterwork (A Doll’s House), Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event— when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In A Doll’s House, Part 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?
