The University of North Alabama Cinematic Arts Theatre will present "A Doll's House, Part 2," by Lucas Hnath, at the George S. Lindsey Theatre. Showings will be held February 26-29 at 7:30 p.m. as well as February 29 and March 1 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 for students, faculty, staff and alumni and $15 for adults.

In the final scene of Ibsen's 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, "A Doll's House," Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, to begin a life of her own. Audience members do not have to be familiar with "A Doll's House" in order to enjoy and understand Part 2.

In Lucas Hnath's "A Doll House, Part 2," a knock sounds on the same door that slammed so many years before. Nora has unexpectedly returned to her old life. What does this homecoming mean for Nora and those that she left behind?

"We always try and give our students a variety of challenges throughout the year. I found it very interesting for a playwright to take a set of serious themes, like the ones covered in Isben's original play, and give a comedic take on them. This style of performance, design, and production is meant to provide our students with challenging opportunities," says Coordinator of Cinematic Arts and Theatre program and Director of the production, Charlton James.

Tombigbee St. Box Office Hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday 1-5:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 11-4 p.m., and Saturdays 1-6 p.m.
