About the show

The Bridge Production Group presents a new and loose adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic drama 'Hedda Gabler.' More…

Returning to Norway from a three-month honeymoon abroad, Hedda finds herself trapped in an unfurnished house with her uninspiring and academic husband. Trapped by moving boxes. Trapped by talks of academia. Trapped. The sudden inflow of guests and ghosts from the past provide Hedda the opportunity to stir the pot, creating some brief diversions to pass the time. As her actions continue to alter the lives of those around her, Hedda propels herself closer and closer to the brink of insanity. 'Hedda' is part of The Bridge's month-long residency at The Robert Moss Theatre, and is performed in rotating repertory with 'Red Light Winter' and 'The Sonnets.'

Clever, Disappointing, Funny, Missing the point

See it if you like rewrites of classics
