In the final scene of Henrik Ibsen’s groundbreaking masterwork, A Doll’s House, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event when Nora slams the door on everything in her life instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

Role # 1 Nora
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

A striking woman with a fierce energy. Highly intelligent, a commanding presence, shrewd. She has had more than her share of emotional trials and has learned to keep her personal life a mystery to those with whom she has any sort of relationship. She is returning to her old home to speak with her ex-husband only because she must clean up some past business in order to move forward with her life. It is the last place she wishes to be, perhaps because it is the only place where she feels emotionally vulnerable.
