Nora’s back, and this time, she’s kicking down the door! Ensemble Theatre Cincinnati presents the regional premiere of the scintillating comedy that’s sweeping the nation, A Doll’s House, Part 2.

Nora famously slammed the door on her marriage, leaving her family behind in Ibsen’s 1879 revolutionary classic, but what happened to the iconic heroine next? This audacious sequel imagines her 15 years later as a changed woman. Universally acclaimed on Broadway, this smart, sophisticated comedy crackles with razor-sharp humor that speaks directly to today’s audiences, giving new voice to its predecessor’s themes of marriage, fidelity, and personal independence.
“I love that this play forces us to confront our own beliefs about marriage and family,” says director Regina Pugh. “All of the characters in this story make extremely good arguments and extremely flawed arguments and, ultimately, it becomes very hard to tell one from the other. Life is like that. We often feel like we are doing the exact right thing and exact wrong thing at the exact same time.”
