We’ve got a nice long article this week, because Iowa Stage is about to do something very special. The seminal play A Doll’s House was written in 1879, and is one of the most celebrated plays ever created. The sequel, A Doll’s House Part 2, was penned in 2017, earning a Tony award and 8 nominations. Iowa Stage is presenting both plays, in repertory, beginning Friday September 27 at the Stoner Studio Theatre inside the Civic Center.
Iowa Stage is only the second theatre ever to present these shows this way. And honestly, they were the first one to announce they were doing so. Denver’s Center for Performing Arts then scheduled their performances for two weeks earlier, stealing a bit of Des Moines’ thunder! But that doesn’t diminish the impact of these productions, both the original show and the groundbreaking sequel.
