A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2 announced at the San Antonio Botanical Garden on March 10

Calling all theater lovers! The Classic Theater will launch its first outdoor production of the year with the Tony-nominated play, A Doll’s House, Part 2, which will run from March 10-27, 2022 and will feature local favorites Anna Gangai and Vic Treviño. Outdoor, COVID-free performances will be held Thursday, Friday, and Sunday nights at the San Antonio Botanical Garden beginning at 7:30 p.m.

The play picks up where the original A Doll’s House, created by Henrik Ibsen and embraced by activists throughout the last century, left off. And no, you don’t need to see the original play to enjoy the heated debate in this rich sequel. Hnath takes the century-long guesswork out of what our main character, Nora, might have become after the conclusion of A Doll’s House. The wit, artistry, and raw emotion make this piece as impactful as the original drama, especially in the era of “Me Too.”

The synopsis for A Doll’s House, Part 2 from Playbill.com reads: “In the final scene of Ibsen’s groundbreaking 1879 masterpiece, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children and to start a life alone. That watershed event – when Nora slams the door on everything in her life – instantly propelled the global drama into the modern age. In A Doll’s House, Part 2, many years have passed since the release Now there’s a knock on that same door. Nora is back. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?

Enjoy an extraordinary and uplifting evening watching Nora, one of our most important dramatic heroines, return to the home and family she left behind all those years ago. What will she find? And what will you discover when you re-examine its history?
