‘A Doll’s House, Part 2’

Photos and Review by Dana Nollsch

Forced to return to the home she left 14 years ago, Nora struggles with the reality she made for herself.

In the late 1800s, things were much different than they are today. Nora had left her family and enjoyed unique freedom that most women of her era could not. This freedom has come at a cost. This cost has become very apparent to her and the husband she left behind 14 years ago upon returning to the house she thought she would never see again.

“A Doll’s House, Part 2” picks up after the 1879 play a doll house written by Henrique Ibsen’s. But don’t think that you have to see part one to enjoy part two. This story stands on its own.

I enjoyed seeing Bruka Theatre’s production of “A Doll’s House, Part 2”, and I can tell you that the acting is some of the best I’ve ever seen. They seem to have an uncanny ability to draw the audience into the drama and emotions of the scenes. The Costuming and set are also spot on and blend well with the mood and era of the story.

Congratulations to Bruka for offering a solid play and performance in these challenging times.
