‘A smart, sophisticated play, with striking performances’

The Age


In 1879, Nora Helmer handed her husband her keys and left home, slamming the door behind her. But what ever happened to this famous literary figure from Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House?

US Playwright Lucas Hnath has stunned audiences with his brilliant contemporary classic, which continues Nora’s story in a fascinating and funny sequel-of-sorts. Whether you’re familiar with A Doll’s House or not, this Broadway smash-hit will have you seeing its themes of equality and relationships with fresh eyes.

MTC Associate Director Sarah Goodes (Switzerland) directs this Australian premiere production starring acclaimed actor Marta Dusseldorp (Jack Irish, A Place to Call Home), Deidre Rubenstein (Ladies in Black), Greg Stone (The Weir) and Zoe Terakes (Janet King).


Marta Dusseldorp discusses the Australian premiere of A Doll’s House, Part 2 at the MTC Season 2018 Launch.
