University of Southern Indiana Theatre continues its fall 2019 season with a student-directed production of A Doll’s House, Part 2, by Lucas Hnath, from October 17-19. It will be directed by USI theatre student Brennen Hobson.
In A Doll’s House, written in 1879 by Henrik Ibsen, Nora Helmer made the decision to walk out on her husband and children – a decision that in the nineteenth century was practically unheard of. Now, in A Doll’s House, Part 2, fifteen years have gone by. With only a knock on the door to announce her arrival, Nora has returned to her former home. But why? What will it mean for her family and friends that she left behind?
Hobson will be joined by a design team of fellow USI students: Cheyenne Welte as costume designer; Megan Gilbert as lighting and sound designer; Jacey Stewart as scenic designer; and Ryan Butler as production stage manager.
The cast of A Doll’s House, Part 2 includes USI students Paige Murray, Allen Karch, Clare McGregor, and Kyra Roberts.
Admission is free on a first come, first served basis. All performances will take place in the Helen Mallette Studio Theatre, located in room 0105 in lower level of the College of Liberal Arts.). The performances will be held October 17-19 with all showings starting at 7:00 p.m. Follow us on Facebook at USITheatre and NewHarmonyTheatre, Twitter @TheatreUSI, and Instagram @USI_theatre for updates and photos.
