A Doll's House, Part 2 @ American Players Theatre
Friday, November 8 matinee
Join us Friday, November 8th, for our American Players Theatre (APT) play, A Doll’s House, Part 2 by Lucas Hnath.
Directed by Brenda Devita. Featuring: Colleen Madden as Nora, Jim DeVita as Torvald, Sarah Day as Anne and Melisa Pereyra as Emmy.
Synopsis: With a knock at the door, Nora is launched back into a household she helped burn to the ground 15 years before. But even after all this time, family ties cinch tighter than expected, and she discovers that confronting people she hurt in the past takes courage, a good sense of humor, and a strong sense of self. Fortunately, Nora ticks all those boxes. A provocative and surprisingly funny debate about the roles people choose to play, and those they feel forced into; a conversation with 140 years of momentum behind it.
A fast-paced and contemporary sequel to A Doll’s House, that also stands perfectly well on its own.
Seating: Tickets are located in the center section, Touchstone's exceptional seat area.
Special Event for trip registrants: A movie viewing and discussion of the original story of A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen will be presented October 24th, 2:00 pm at Oakwood Village University Woods.
For more information on the play, see APT's A Doll’s House, Part 2 website.
Estimated Run Time: 2 hours, with no intermission (1:00 PM – 3:00 PM)
A Doll’s House, Part 2 will be staged in APT's 201-seat indoor Touchstone Theatre. It's about a 5-minute stroll from the parking lot, up a gentle slope (though there is a shuttle available if you prefer to ride). The path leads through the prairie to a beautiful, modern, intimate, and climate-controlled facility. Once inside, you'll find a gift shop, concession stand and restrooms--the same amenities as the Hill Theatre (but to slightly smaller scale). More information about this theater.
