Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” upset social conventions when it was first unveiled with an ending that painted a picture of women’s independence. Since then, the play has become a modern classic that continues to be performed around the world 140 years later.
PARCO staged the new play in August 2019, which is by emergent American playwright Lucas Hnath, and boldly continues the story in an ambitious work written for contemporary audiences.
Following “The Children” produced by PARCO, which won awards such as the 26th Yomiuri Theater Award, “A Doll’s House, Part 2” was an early challenger in the category of topical translated play.
