In 1879, Nora Helmer walked out the door, leaving her husband and children and societal constraints behind her, instantly propelling world drama into the modern age. Now, 15 years later, there is a knock at that same door, as the squirrel returns to her cage with an incredibly awkward favor to ask. In this bitingly funny and fascinating sequel to Ibsen’s revolutionary masterpiece, sparks fly and the past and present collide in a taut theatrical showdown. Behind every door is a possibility, and behind every ending is a new beginning.
Note: Not to worry––familiarity with Ibsen is not required to thoroughly enjoy this play.

On the eve of his appearance before the Senate Permanent Sub Committee on Investigations led by Senator Joseph McCarthy, American writer Langston Hughes fitfully attempts to compose a poem. As accusations whirl, censorships abound, and freedoms are called into question, this inspired-by-true-events, lyrical drama examines not only the tense yet necessary relationship between art and politics, but also the emotional and deeply personal connection between the artist and his craft in the face of oppressive power.

You can’t fool 80-year-old André - he’s a man of his own mind. But there’s definitely something fishy going on. He’s a retired tap dancer living with his daughter and her husband, and...or, no wait, is he a retired engineer whose daughter is visiting from London? And who are those people who keep turning up in his flat, and where does his furniture keep disappearing to, and why is he still in his pajamas? No, something’s going on, and if he can just find his watch, he’ll get to the bottom of it.
