After a delay of nearly two years, The Sherman Players are thrilled to finally present this modern classic.
The story follows Nora, who in the final scene of Henrik Ibsen’s classic A Doll’s House makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children. A door slams. The curtain falls on a stunned audience. Lucas Hnath continues Nora’s story in this intriguing play with a decidedly modern perspective. Fifteen years have passed when there’s a knock on that same door. Why is Nora back — and what will her return mean to those she left behind? Hnath’s new take on this Ibsen classic explores gender roles and societal expectations through the eyes of a woman mired in an era for which she is simply too exceptional.
Sherman Players Artistic Director, Matt Austin, says of the production, ‘I’m thrilled to have this play finally on our stage. This is not your grandmother’s Ibsen. This play is smart, funny and so timely. I can’t wait to reintroduce Nora to a brand new generation’.
The cast includes local favorites, Alicia Dempster as Nora, Joe Harding as Torvald, Meg Jones as Anne Marie and Desirae Kelley as Emmy. Directed by Michael Schaner. Stage Managed by Heather Haneman. Produced by Steve Stott. Set & Lighting Design by Al Chiappetta. Costumes by Terry Hawley.
