Hampton Theatre Company Presents A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2 This Month

The play opens on May 26 at the Quogue Community Hall and runs through June 12.

"A Doll's House, Part 2," Lucas Hnath's "smart, funny and utterly engrossing" (New York Times) play revisiting the central characters of Henrik Ibsen's 1879 original, will be the final production of the Hampton Theatre Company's 2021-2022 season, opening on May 26 at the Quogue Community Hall and running through June 12.

When the door slammed in 1879 Norway in Henrik Ibsen's revolutionary play, a young wife and mother left 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 she abandoned. Lucas Hnath's bitingly funny sequel unfolds in a series of bristling standoffs revealing that behind every opinion there is a person, and a slamming door isn't just an end, but also the chance for a new beginning.

In a cast of four, the HTC production of "A Doll's House, Part 2" features two HTC veterans, Rosemary Cline as Nora and Andrew Botsford as Torvald. Making her debut on the HTC stage in the role of Nora's daughter Emmy is Molly Brennan, who was directed by Ms. Cline in productions at Westhampton Beach High School and was awarded one of the HTC's Peter Marbury scholarships in 2020. Newcomer Marianne Schmidt has the role of housekeeper and nanny Anne Marie.

George Loizides ("Private Lives," "Native Gardens," "Lost in Yonkers") directs. Set design is by Mr. Loizides; lighting design by Sebastian Paczynski; sound by Seamus Naughton; and costumes by Teresa Lebrun.

"A Doll's House, Part 2" will be performed from May 26 through June 12 on Thursdays and Fridays at 7, Saturdays at 8 and Sundays at 2:30. An additional matinee performance will be offered during the final weekend of the production, on Saturday, June 11, prior to the regular 8 p.m. performance that evening. Two bonus "talkbacks" with the cast will be offered, the first immediately following the June 3 Friday evening performance, and the second following the June 5 Sunday matinee.
