Waterfront Playhouse presents: A Doll’s House, Part 2
A Doll’s House, Part 2 is the continuation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House. Far from being dry or stuffy, ADH, Pt.2 is hilariously funny, whip-smart and resonant to our gender politics. The story picks up 15 years after Nora famously slams the door on her stifling marriage at the conclusion of A Doll’s House. In Mr. Hnath’s updated version, Nora is now a successful business woman, who finds her husband, daughter and wise-cracking maid to be as changed as she has become. Fireworks explode as the play explores the rules of society and gender. See website for show dates. Show times 8 p.m.
