UIS Theatre is gearing up for another series of shows debuting in early April. A Doll’s House, Part 2, written by Lucas Hnath, is a continuation of Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 classic A Doll’s House. Director Eric Thibodeaux-Thompson said that “our UIS Theatre audiences can expect a deliberately hybrid setting involving aspects from the late 1890s, as well as aspects from today’s world, in order to tell a story involving the institution of marriage.”  Thibodeaux-Thompson went on to say that Hnath’s play poses a thought-provoking question: “Is marriage a naturally good thing for both partners?”
