Hedda Gabler, by Henrik Ibsen
adapted by Vincent Ratsavong
Director: Vincent Ratsavong
Producer: Val Tracy
Performance Dates (this is a virtual/video production):
March 26, 27 & April 3, 2021
Hedda Gabler is restricted and bored by her new middle-class environment. Hedda plays out her own fantasies and psychological games with those nearest to her to an ultimately costly end. The play opens as Hedda and her academic husband, George Tesman, return from their honeymoon. Soon after, Hedda is reacquainted with an old school friend, Mrs. Elvsted, and the brilliant but wayward writer Eilert Lövborg. Hedda finds pleasure in manipulating Lövborg into ruining both his career and his relationship with Mrs. Elvsted. Hedda Gabler is a heightened drama that crumbles into a costly end. The play consists of four acts that explore issues of power, control, and social expectation.
