Ibsen's groundbreaking and disturbing play brings us one of the most challenging character in Western Drama, Hedda Gabler, and a closed circle of lovers, confidantes, and competitors. Trapped in a life she cannot bear, pressured by the roles that her culture expects her to fulfill, Hedda throws herself against the walls that limit her power and agency. "The play is to be about 'the insuperable' - the longing and striving to defy convention, to defy what people accept." wrote Ibsen. Our production will examine this work with fresh eyes, seeking to expose the connections between Ibsen's complex portrait of a struggling world, and our own.
