Orlando Shakes in partnership with UCF presents 2017 Tony nominee, A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center (812 East Rollins Street) select nights Jan 2 – Feb 3, 2019.
In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking 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?
“A comedic send-up of Ibsen’s original dramatic script, Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2 is a continuation of Nora’s journey,” Director Cynthia White explains.
Orlando Shakes’ A Doll’s House, Part 2 features:
- Suzanne O’Donnell as Nora. O’Donnell first season at Orlando Shakes was in 1993 in As You Like It and Comedy of Errors.
