Description

Hedda Gabler is the original lethal Desperate Housewife with a fetish for guns. Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" has been described as the role closest to Hamlet in the female repertoire. Since Hedda was unleashed on the world in 1891, the role has attracted a formidable range of top-flight actresses keen to test themselves against its exceptional demands - from Peggy Ashcroft, Maggie Smith, Joan Greenwood and Janet Suzman to Fiona Shaw, Eve Best, Cate Blanchett, Harriet Walter and most recently Sheridan Smith. We are very excited to bring this extraordinarily complex character to it's Regional Premiere!
