EQUALITY PRODUCTIONS announces the auditions for its virtual production of DOLL’S HOUSE, PART TWO by Lucas Hnath. Fifteen years ago, Nora left her husband, Torvald. Nora has since become a successful feminist writer, while Torvald continued to work at the bank and raised their children. But after all that’s happened, will Torvald be willing to give her what she wants? After all this time, is Nora prepared to face what she left behind?
- NORA: A writer and ex-mother. Intelligent and independent, she takes great pride in her success and autonomy. (Stage Age 40-50)
- TORVALD: Nora’s estranged husband. On the surface, he is measured and reserved. He feels quite deeply, but is unsure of how to express it. (Stage Age 50-60)
- ANNE MARIE: The housekeeper and nanny of the Helmer household. Bighearted, candid, and quick to make every sacrifice for those around her. (Stage Age 60-75)
- EMMY: Nora and Torvald’s daughter. Young, but not to be underestimated. Cunning and wise, self-aware, and in some ways, a traditional romantic. (Stage Age early 20s)
