  • Lucas Hnath’s canny, smart, moving sequel to Ibsen’s A Doll’s House saw Nora returning to the family she abandoned 15 years earlier, to face the music and demand a divorce from Torvald. It could have been woefully contrived, but it blazed with an Ibsenite intensity of its own, with Noma Dumezweni terrific as the still-resolute but quietly pained Nora. Direction by James Macdonald.
