A woman of dangerous independence restrained by a conventional marriage, Hedda Gabler indulges in a cruel game, amusing herself with the misfortune she inflicts on those around her. Cutting and deliciously deceptive, Hedda struggles to balance her wild desires against the presentable life she's chosen for herself, but instead sets into motion a manic chain of events. A new interpretation of Henrik Ibsen's modern classic, Hedda Gabler is surprising, scandalous and subversive.
