Beck Center for the Arts will present a production of A Doll's House, Part 2. The performance occurs from May 31—June 30, 2024, in the intimate Studio Theater.

This play will be directed by Don Carrier and features the work of playwright, Lucas Hnath. This eccentric, probing, and bold play is both a continuation of Henrik Ibsen's complex exploration of traditional gender roles, as well as a sharp contemporary take on the struggles inherent in all human relationships across time. This 2017 Tony Award Winner of Best Play starts fifteen years after Nora Helmer slammed the door on her stifling domestic life. Now a knock comes at that same door. It is Nora, and she has returned with an urgent request. What will her sudden return mean to those she left behind?

Director Don Carrier shares, “A Doll's House by Ibsen was a play that really impacted me when I read it as a child. The subject matter was so unique and more so for those who saw/read it when it first came out. Just hearing A Doll's House, Part 2 as a title seemed preposterous and yet in reading the play we see a wonderful mix of contemporary and period of drama and comedy of ideas and one liner's. The audience will still walk away invested in the decision Nora makes and her journey in making it.”
