By Henrik Ibsen
April 25 - May 16, 2004
On my list of the greatest plays ever written. HEDDA GABLER holds a place of honor. She's beautiful, icy, manipulative - a strong woman trapped in a confining world. She's desperate to break free, but terrified of scandal. Newly married, but haunted by a past love, she plays a dangerous game with everyone around her. HEDDA spars with wit and passion, and then blazes to full fury. Ibsen's play is a wild ride of sex, power and desperation - providing wonderful opportunities for the great acting and thrilling design that are hallmarks fo Triad Stage. This is one classic that feels exhilaratingly contemporary.
