Photo Flash: First Look at A DOLL'S HOUSE at Aurora Theatre

2017 Broadway smash-hit A Doll's House, Part 2 is set to hit Aurora Theatre's mainstage from January 10 - February 10. Based on the characters of the Henrik Ibsen classic play, this follow-up story imagines what would happen if Nora Helmer returned home, 15 years after she slams the door on her husband and family. Audiences don't need to be familiar with the original story to enjoy this "Part 2," as playwright Lucas Hnath juxtaposes contemporary and classic sensibilities to create a thought-provoking and sharp-witted comedy.

"Audiences loved A Doll's House, Part 2 at Actor's Express earlier this fall, so we're looking forward to revisiting the show in Lawrenceville," said Director Freddie Ashley. "I think fans of A Doll's House will love to see what happened to Nora after she slammed the door, but one of the great things about Lucas Hnath's funny, funny play is that you don't even need to be familiar with Ibsen's original to enjoy it. It's a perfect blend of modern and classic - a play of big ideas and big laughs."

The Suzi-recommended show follows the return of Nora Helmer as she knocks on the same door she closed 15 years ago. Now a successful author, she is asking her estranged husband, Torvald, for one simple thing: a divorce. Long simmering resentments boil over and family turmoil turns up the heat to create hilariously explosive confrontations.

A co-production between Aurora Theatre and Actor's Express, A Doll's House, Part 2 features a quartet of Atlanta's top-tier talent. Three-time Suzi Award winner Tess Malis Kincaid will star as Nora, Rob Cleveland as Nora's estranged husband, Torvald, Shelli Delgado as the Helmer's daughter, Emmy and Deadra Moore as the nanny, Anne Marie. This all-star cast is under the direction of Freddie Ashley, Actor's Express Artistic Director and two-time Suzi Bass Award Winner for Outstanding Direction. Freddie has been a mainstay at Aurora as well, having helmed projects like A Catered Affair (Suzi nomination), Camelot and Wait Until Dark, among others.

A Doll's House, Part 2 will play at Aurora Theatre January 10 - February 10, with a discount matinee on Tuesday, January 22. Tickets are currently on sale; single ticket prices start at $20 and may be purchased online at bit.ly/ADollsHousePart2 or by calling the Box Office at 678-226-6222.
