The Donmar Warehouse production of Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House, Part 2 officially opens June 16th. Previews for the UK premiere began on June 10th and the run is scheduled to continue through August 6th.

The previously announced production stars Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Olivier winner Noma Dumezweni as Nora, Patricia Allison as Emmy, Tony nominee Brían F. O’Byrne as Torvald and June Watson as Anne Marie.

Hnath’s play picks up 15 years after Ibsen’s original play. Nora has slammed the door of her marriage to seek her own happiness and livelihood. Now she’s returning to confront the family she left behind – for reasons unknown to those she walked away from.
