The Rogue Theatre company will present the Tony Award-nominated comedy-drama by Lucas Hnath “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” directed by Oregon Shakespeare Festival actor Caroline Shaffer. The play picks up 15 years after Henrik Ibsen’s Nora infamously slammed the door on her marriage and children. With razor-sharp dialogue, “A Doll’s House, Part 2” provokes questions about marriage, gender inequality, and in insightful and often hilarious ways, the meaning of liberation. Cellist Michal Palzewicz will perform before and during the show. Performances are set for 2 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, May 6-16, outdoors at Grizzly Peak Winery, 1600 E. Nevada St., Ashland. Seating is limited, and social distancing protocols will be enforced. You don’t need to have seen the original to follow “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” Tickets start at $25. Tickets for the Friday, May 7, opening benefit for Resolve Center for Dispute Resolution and Restorative Justice with wine and talkback are $35. Tickets for the preview performance, Thursday, May 6, are $20. For further information or to purchase tickets see roguetheatercompany.com, or call 541-205-9190.
