Actor's Express Announces Co-Production, A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2, with Aurora Theatre
Actor's Express will co-produce A Doll's House, Part 2 by Lucas Hnath with Aurora Theatre. Fifteen years ago, Nora Helmer made the shocking decision to leave her husband and family, setting out on a new independent life. Now she has come home, knocking on the same door she slammed shut a decade and a half earlier - arriving with a request for an impossible favor from her husband. Long-simmering resentments boil over in an intellectual and comedic slugfest of ideas, love - and the rights of women in the modern world. This Tony-winning comedy of ideas from the author of The Christians was one of the most talked-about smash hits of the 2017 Broadway season.
According to Artistic Director Freddie Ashley, "When I attended A Doll's House, Part 2 on Broadway last summer, it was one of the most relentlessly entertaining plays I'd ever seen. It is so smart, so funny and so impactful - a theatrical sucker punch. I knew right away that it belonged on the Actor's Express stage. And it's especially exciting to partner with my beloved Aurora Theatre. Anthony and Ann-Carol gave me my very first directing job, setting into motion a string of over a dozen collaborations that have been some of the most treasured of my career. Working with Aurora feels like coming home."
