Photo Flash: First Look at A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2 Premiering at South Coast Repertory

South Coast Repertory is producing the world premiere of Lucas Hnath's A Doll's House, Part 2 on the Julianne Argyros Stage, April 9-30. As previously announced, a production opens on Broadway at the end of April.

BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below!

The cast includes Shannon Cochran, Bill Geisslinger, Lynn Milgrim and Virginia Vale. A Doll's House, Part 2 is directed by Shelley Butler and is part of the Pacific Playwrights Festival, the theatre's annual new-play showcase.

The story follows Nora, who in the final scene of Ibsen's classic A Doll's House makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children. A door slams. The curtain falls on a stunned audience. Lucas Hnath continues Nora's story in this intriguing play with a decidedly modern perspective. Fifteen years have passed when there's a knock on that same door. Why is Nora back-and what will her return mean to those she left behind?

The design and creative team includes Takeshi Kata and Se Hyun Oh, scenic design; Sara Ryung Clement, costume design; Tom Ontiveros, lighting design; Cricket S. Myers, sound design; and Joann DeNaut, CSA, casting. The production manager is Joshua Marchesi and the stage manager is Bree Sherry. Kimberly Colburn is the dramaturg.

A Doll's House, Part 2 has generous support from The Playwrights Circle. The media partners are KCRW and the Orange County Business Journal. This play was commissioned by South Coast Repertory and is the recipient of an Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award.
