About A Doll's House, Part 2

As a door slams in 1879 Norway, a young wife and mother leaves behind her family, freeing herself from the shackles of traditional societal constraints. Now, 15 years later, that same door opens to reveal Nora, a changed woman with an incredibly awkward favor to ask the people who she abandoned. Lucas Hnath's bitingly funny sequel to Ibsen's revolutionary masterpiece unfolds in a series of bristling stand-offs that reveal in Nora's world, much like our own, behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn't just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.

ONSTAGE SEATS INFORMATION: "A Dolls House, Part 2" features a Steppenwolf first: an on stage audience seating experience. To reach the stage, patrons will be escorted through a backstage path historically only used by the crew and actors. Before performances, on stage ticket holders will have dedicated access to restrooms, concessions and complimentary coat check. On stage seating includes accessible options for people who use mobility devices or don’t use stairs.

Please note: on stage ticket holders will need to check in at the Upstairs Theatre lobby to start the exclusive behind-the-scenes escort to the stage no later than 15 minutes prior to performance.

Taut, smart new play. Hnath is a supremely talented writer, interested in presenting many sides of an argument. A few scenes ripple most pleasurably and unpredictably… I like this piece of writing very much—if you haven’t seen it, you should.
Chicago Tribune
There is nothing subtle about Hnath’s 90-minute play…there are many fascinating passages in Hnath’s drama and Witt’s cast brings them to life.
Chicago Sun Times
A laugh riot… Any director looking for a theatrical masterclass is in good hands watching director Robin Witt’s work here. It cannot be understated how specific and detailed Witt’s production is, and it works wonders.
