Grace Gonglewski as Nora in "A Doll's House, Part 2"
On today’s podcast, we head over to Arden Theatre Company to chat with Grace Gonglewski who plays Nora in Arden’s production of A Doll’s House, Part 2 by Lucas Hnath, directed by Tracy Bridgen. Part 2 picks up 15 years after the original piece only, written over 100 years later. How’s that for layering. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2
The play begins with a knock on the door — the same door that was slammed shut, fifteen years earlier when Nora exited at the end of Ibsen’s play. Nora has returned, and it is she who is knocking. After leaving her husband, children, and the nursemaid, Nora became a successful feminist novelist. The reason for her return is to finalize a divorce from Torvald; she needs him to sign the legal papers. Nora is questioned about what she has been doing — the family thought she might have been dead — and the family and the nursemaid express their recriminations of her.
