A Doll's House, Part 2

Thursdays, Fridays, 8 p.m., Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 7 p.m., Sundays, 2 p.m., Saturdays, 4 & 8 p.m., Wed., Oct. 31, 1:30 p.m. and Sun., Nov. 4, 2 & 7 p.m. Continues through Nov. 4

Henrik Ibsen's classic drama A Doll's House ends with Nora Helmer walking out on her husband and family so that she can live an independent life. This was a shocking, scandalous ending for a play in 1879, but it's less so in the modern era. In Lucas Hnath's A Doll's House, Part 2, Nora returns after fifteen years of traveling, affairs and work. But what does she want? Her dutiful and somewhat dull husband Torvald would certainly like to know. Their youngest child, Emmy, is recently engaged, and neither father nor daughter wants this reminder of a failed marriage around. Is it possible Nora didn't find the freedom she wanted? The Repertory Theatre St. Louis continues its season with A Doll's House, Part 2. Performances are Tuesday through Sunday (October 10 to November 4) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; www.repstl.org). Tickets are $19 to $92. $19-$92

A Page of Madness

Sun., Oct. 28, 7:30 p.m.

Teinosuke Kinugasa's silent film is an amazing depiction of one woman’s graphic descent into mental illness, and her husband’s dedication to helping her. Released in 1926, it is one of the very rare Japanese silent films to have survived World War II. This avant guard film combines astounding cinematography, and a emotionally packed story in a non linear exploration of what’s going on in the characters’s (sometimes unhinged) minds. Live, minimalist score provided by the Alloy Orchestra. $10

Webster Groves – a great place to live, work, and play… even for the departed… Discover eerie legends and uncanny firsthand accounts of the ghostly and supernatural in a neighborhood perhaps just like yours, where residents of a quiet bedroom community come home nightly to unseen footsteps; resign themselves to objects mysteriously moving, disappearing, and reappearing; live with lurking, spectral figures; and otherwise share their homes with the ghostly and supernatural. Some who lived that history have evidently remained. Patrick Dorsey reads from his book, Haunted Webster. The author also invites the audience to share their Kirkwood ghostly accounts for a future book! free
