by Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Jon Robin Baitz
The title character in Henrik Ibsen's classic Hedda Gabler is a beautiful, cold and destructive woman who is one of the most riveting roles ever brought to life on stage. A character tragedy, Hedda Gabler is Ibsen's most controlled and ruthless work (newly adapted by critically acclaimed playwright Jon Robin Baitz). The play, which still packs the same punch as it did when it premiered in 1891, tells the story of a woman who is a complex mix of wiles, stratagems, cruelty, charm, cowardice and cunning. Hedda's explosive struggle to survive forever alters the lives of those around her as the fire inside her burns to a tragic end. One of Ibsen’s most famous masterpieces.
