REVIEWS

“[A] smart, funny and utterly engrossing play…" ~ NY Times

★★★★★ "If Ibsen’s play is about suffocation, Hnath’s is about airing things out. Modern in its language, mordant in its humor and suspenseful in its plotting — Nora, now a scandalous writer, needs Torvald’s help to avoid being blackmailed by a judge — the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility ... keeps you hanging on each turn of argument and twist of knife ... lucid and absorbing … the play judiciously balances conflicting ideas about freedom, love and responsibility ... It’s a slam dunk" ~ Time Out

“Hnath’s inspired writing, which endows each character with an arsenal of fastballs, curveballs and spitballs, keep[s] us disarmingly off-balance. He’s an uncommonly gifted parodist. For all its seriousness, A Doll's House, Part 2 is suffused with a contagious bemusement” ~ Deadline.com

"With unfussy eloquence, [the play] asks how much, in a century-plus, life has changed for Nora and women like her in a world that often still has firm ideas about where they belong” ~ Hollywood Reporter
