“A DOLL’S HOUSE” STAGED READING
As Christmas Eve approaches and purse strings tighten; the Nora and Torvald Helmer discover that the facade of their perfect lives is beginning to crack. Nora has a secret and what begins as an exquisite family drama quickly reveals itself to be a life-or-death thriller with no clear villains or means of escape.
Featuring Anja Bentson, Kaia Bentson, Katrina Bentson, Olena Hodges, Zora Lungren, Kevin Lynch, David Mayer, Cindy Rutstein, Zachary Schneider.
JULY 24-25 | TICKETS AVAILABLE SOON
“A DOLL’S HOUSE, PART 2”
Fifteen years have passed between a door slam in Ibsen’s classic and a “knock-knock” that begins “Part 2.” What follows are 90 deft, devastating minutes that connect the past and present and shine a light on how we seem to be going backwards in our thinking about women’s rights, identities, ownership of bodies, and gender roles. Featuring David Churchill, Ada Faith-Feyma, Shelley Hartle, and Amy Walker.
A fully staged production.
JULY 31 – AUG 08 | $25
