Rounding out the cast is Tony winner Jayne Houdyshell, who continues performances as Anne Marie. Houdyshell, Cooper, and Rashad each earned Tony nominations for their work in Hnath’s comedic follow-up to Iben’s drama.

A Doll’s House, Part 2 picks up 15 years after the original, which ends with Nora closing the door on her family in a quest for independence. Now, following self-realized success, Nora returns home to confront her past in order to truly move on.

In addition to Metcalf’s win and nods for her three co-stars, the play received nominations for Best Play, Best Direction for Sam Gold, Best Costume Design for David Zinn, and Best Lighting Design for Jennifer Tipton.
