Hedda Gabler

7:30 p.m, Nov. 20–21; 2 p.m., Nov. 22

Just back from an extended honeymoon, Hedda Gabler is confronted with the reality of her new life. She struggles to come to terms with her surroundings, social standing, a possible pregnancy and the mind numbing boredom that define her existence. Past lovers and rivals unexpectedly resurface, setting in motion a riveting string of events that spiral to a tragic end. Written in 1890s Norway by Henrik Ibsen, Hedda Gabler is a foundational piece of the theatre cannon and widely regarded as one of the first major feminist works. In this production we focus on how digital technology and media can speak to live performance, exploring themes of control and constraint, the beauty in our lives against the inertia of the world and the resiliency and hope of the human spirit.

Warning: Please be advised that this play contains discussion of suicide and includes a simulated suicide. A loud (recorded) gunshot will be heard.
