Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece is a searing and unforgettable play, containing one of the most brilliantly conceived characters in European drama - Hedda Gabler.

Hedda is beautiful, clever and passionate. A facinating and manipulative woman, her craving for a life she cannot have threathens to destroy her.

Trapped by society's expectations, alienated by a life of domesticity, her frustration leads to the unleashing of violent and destuctive forces.

Hedda Gabler is an enthrilling modern tragedy, a revolutionary play of startling insight.
