Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 masterpiece A Doll’s House ends with a positively shocking one in its time: Nora Helmer, a housewife, leaves her husband and children behind in order to gain her independence. Now, Fifteen years after she infamously slammed the door on her stifling domestic life, she has returned with an urgent request. Before she can get what she needs, however, she must reckon with the family she left in her wake. Lucas Hnath’s funny, probing, and bold play is at once a continuation of Ibsen’s complex exploration of gender roles and a clever contemporary take on the struggles inherent in all human relationships.
