This is Nebraska Wesleyan University Theatre’s first indoor production since March. What better way to welcome you back than with a family drama about returning home?

Ibsen’s classic 1879 drama ends with Nora storming away from her husband and children. Lucas Hnath’s sequel jumps ahead 15 years when Nora returns, in need of a favor. Will her family open the door she slammed on them?

When French playwright Eugene Ionesco was trying to learn English, he stumbled over the language’s many absurdities. (You try to explain “It’s raining cats and dogs!” to an English language learner.)

The experience inspired his absurd play, “La Cantatrice Chauve,” or, “The Bald Soprano.” It’s a classic comedy of the absurd order.

Performance dates





NWU Theatre rolls time backwards for the famous Frank Shepard, showing us how he reached fame and fortune—and what he gave up to get there.
