As Christmas Eve approaches and purse strings tighten; the Nora and Torvald Helmer discover that the facade of their perfect lives is beginning to crack.

Jul. 24-25 | 7 p.m.
“A Doll's House, Part 2” by Lucas Hnath
Fifteen years have passed between a door slam in Ibsen’s classic and a 'knock-knock' that begins “Part 2.” What follows are 90 deft, devastating minutes that connect the past and present and shine a light on how we seem to be going backwards in our thinking about women’s rights, identities, ownership of bodies, and gender roles. Featuring David Churchill, Ada Faith-Feyma, Shelley Hartle, and Amy Walker.
A fully staged production.
Jul. 31-Aug. 8 | Friday-Saturday 7 p.m., Sunday 2 p.m.
The Whidbey Telecom Summer Nights Series is produced by Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, sponsored by Whidbey Telecom, and presented in part by Robert Atkinson, Margaret Chau, and William Cummings.
