Written by Henrik Ibsen
Adapted and directed by Anthony Skuse
Bored by life and feeling trapped in a stifling marriage, Hedda Gabler, one of Ibsen’s most famous and vivid anti-heroines, struggles to break free from social norms with tragic results.
For Hedda, the everyday is a negative force that affords her no meaning. Her intense sense of boredom quickly becomes aggression. Its ferocity shatters everything in its path, including Hedda herself.
One of the great classic female roles, Hedda Gabler places a complicated and controversial character at the centre of its story and raises important questions about mental health, conformity, manipulation, addiction and suicide.
"ONE OF IBSEN'S GREATEST PLAYS."
