Elgin Theatre Company present 'A Doll's House, Part 2'
The Elgin Theatre Company will present "A Doll's House, Part 2" as its first live production of the 2021-22 season. The play was written by Lucas Hnath and is directed by Thomas Neumann.
In 1879 Nora closed the door on her unhappy marriage by walking out the door and actually leaving her husband and children behind. Now, 15 years later, Nora returns to put final closure to the parts of her life that were left in limbo. However, when new information becomes known and emotionally loaded accusations come forth Nora is now left with unexpected decisions that must be made.
Lucas Hnath's examination of the original Ibsen characters and the social morays including male/female relationships of this period is even more exciting when brought into the 21st century. This performance will leave you glued to your seat as the final outcome unravels.
Nominated for eight Tony awards, this critical drama is a must see for everyone who is desiring to get back to outstanding live theater.
Performances will be held on Oct. 8-10, 15-17, 22-24 at the Elgin Art Showcase, 164 Division St., eighth floor in downtown Elgin.
Friday and Saturday performances start at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances start at 2 p.m. Sunday performances will be sign-acted for the deaf and hard of hearing.
