Intense, Slow, Fluffy

See it if You like the original and want to see a meta take of it.

Don't see it if You expect to be surprised. It's the same old wine in a new bottle. There is also a bit too much Norwegian in it as it's a Norwegian collab.

“Nina Segal's version captures the claustrophobia and anguish of the original, while setting it against a very modern framework, but it suffers from a lack of pace at times...If you are a fan of Ibsen, you will find this production refreshing and thought-provoking. If you are new to his work, it is unclear if it will convert you.”

"The show’s ruminations on artifice, reality and control are subtly done until the last 15 minutes, when the plot spins off into repetition and absurdity. Shame: but I still left with my brain buzzing."

“Boldly reframing Henrik Ibsen’s drama of passion, jealousy and festering malice, Nina Segal’s darkly insightful play-within-a-play offers an incisive deconstruction of the classic drama. ”

"It’s thrilling when style and substance can co-exist as happily as they do here, and the acting is magnificent. Very highly recommended."

“This is a needle-sharp, savagely funny show, deftly skewering the coercive nature of male artistic genius while wittily sending up many of the conversations surrounding this sort of thing”

“...’Shooting Hedda Gabler’ is a piercing, stylish reinvention of Ibsen’s classic. Watching it feels like licking a live wire.”

All That Dazzles (UK)
October 6th, 2023

“The double entendre of the title, ‘Shooting Hedda Gabler’, is just a preview of the multi-layered meta-narrative this piece takes you on as reality and fiction become muddled. This is an illuminating and chilling piece of theatre, as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.”
