Nominated for eight Tony Awards in 2017, this sharp-witted sequel to Ibsen’s masterpiece begins with a knock at the door. 15 years ago Nora walked out that same door, leaving behind her husband and children to pursue a life as a fiercely independent woman. Now Nora writes scandalous novels that encourage women to break free from the bonds of marriage and find their own destiny. When a powerful judge blackmails Nora she comes home to ask for help from the family she abandoned. What happens when the mother and wife that walked out the door has to confront the family she left behind? A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 is a blistering and very funny meditation on marriage and the high cost of personal fulfillment. And don’t worry: familiarity with the original play A Doll’s House is entirely unnecessary to thoroughly enjoy this play!

“A smart, funny and utterly engrossing play!” –The New York Times

Parking Advisory

During A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2, as part of ongoing construction at the Lucie Stern Community Center, our main parking lot spaces have been reduced and getting around the parking lot from Middlefield Road has also been impacted. Additionally, handicap accessible parking spaces at the Lucie Stern Community Center have been moved to slightly different locations. For those with mobility issues, we recommend using the drop-off area at the front of the Lucie Stern Community Center. We advise allowing at least 20 extra minutes to park and walk inside. Our friendly neighbors at Walter Hayes Elementary School (1525 Middlefield Rd.) and Trinity Lutheran Church (1295 Middlefield Rd.) have kindly opened their parking lots to us, but you may need to use street parking. Please also consider carpooling and services like Lyft and Uber.
