On Sept. 26 and Sept. 27, auditions for the play “A Doll’s House, Pt. 2” performed by GRCC Players will be held at Spectrum Theater, and will be open to all GRCC students who are interested. There are roles for one male actor and for three female actresses.
“A Doll’s House” was written by Norwegian playwright and so-called “father of the modern drama,” Henrik Ibsen, in 1879. It was written with the intent of exposing the negative aspects of society and marriage at the time. Written by Lucas Hnath in 2017, “A Doll’s House, Pt. 2” picks up after Ibsen’s 1879 play concludes.
The final scene of Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House,” on the GRCC webpage, is described as follows:
“Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event – when Nora slams the door on everything in her life – instantly propelled world drama into the modern age. In ‘A Doll’s House, Pt. 2,’ many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?”
Students can audition for the play in room 211 of Spectrum Theater from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on the previously stated days. For more information, click here.
