A Northern Stage and Greyscale co-production

By Henrik Ibsen
A new version adapted and directed by Selma Dimitrijevic

This married life is not what Hedda Gabler signed up for. She is the daughter of a general; a gun-toting, horse-riding, party-throwing siren. Then, with one little ring on a finger, she's supposed to turn into the quiet, predictable wife of an academic.

When promises are broken, a old flame comes to town, blackmail and scandal are threatened and other, braver women start to occupy the limelight, Hedda has to decide: must she submit, settle down and knuckle under or is it possible to stand up, take control and tear it all down?

Hedda Gabler is Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece, possibly the greatest stage role ever written for an actress. This funny, shocking and powerful play opens up the desperation and absurdity of trying to live as a thing that you are not.

Hedda Gabler: my house, my rules.
