Coming this November is the Maine premiere of A Doll’s House, Part 2. The play explores, in uproarious fashion, the emotional chaos that results when Nora Helmer returns to the home from which she exited fifteen years earlier. Long-simmering resentments boil over in an intellectual and comedic slugfest about ideas, love – and the rights of women in the modern world. The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, W Magazine and Time Out New York all called A Doll’s House, Part 2 "the best play of the Broadway season." Performances are on Saturdays November 10, 17, and 24 and Friday November 23 at 7 pm and Sundays November 11 and 18 at 3 pm.
The final two performances of Hold Onto Your Hat!, the one-woman show, written and performed by Andrea Itkin, can be seen this weekend at the Holocaust and Human Rights Center in Augusta on Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm. It is part memoir, part social commentary, written from the perspective of youth through old age, delivered all in rhyme and a bit of song with a lot of humor. It will also be a multimedia experience featuring photographs by Cig Harvey and Scott Anthony Smith, collages by Tammam Azzam, paintings by Natasha Mayers, and a short film by Dylan Itkin. Original recordings by Mary Anne Driscoll and Curran Reynolds of Body Stuff. It is directed by Scott Anthony Smith.
