First performed in 1891, 'Hedda Gabler' is about a woman who, having recently married an unimaginably bland man, is bored and resentful. When an old lover is re-introduced in to her life, she spirals down a destructive path to leach from others what she cannot obtain herself: courage and passion. Despite her misguided attempts to seize some power, she is outmanipulated. This new piece seeks to dismantle this classic piece of nineteenth century realism and zoom the perspective to Hedda. And see how much fun it can be.
See it if you like low-fi versions of classics where the love for the source material shines thru. Clever staging + brisk run time = fun little show
Don't see it if One person shows aren't for you, or you don't want to feel the vibe of "putting on a show" as a kid
