Who's that knocking at the door?!? In the final scene of Henrik Ibsen's 1879 controversial masterwork, A Doll's House, Nora Helmer famously slammed the door on her marriage and family life, leaving her husband and children behind. Well...15 years later she's back, in Lucas Hnath's shockingly funny and smart comedy hit that asks how much--even today--has life changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong.
"Hnath's inspired writing, which endows each character with an arsenal of fastballs, curveballs and spitballs keeps us disarmingly off-balance."
