Editorial Reviews

NY Times
...stunning...amazingly contemporary in its considerations of the purpose of life, of the preservation of dignity and integrity...the big issues people don't dare to think about. And here is a staging that does not turn away...
Connecticut Post
...by far the best play of the season...HEDDA GABLER has so many layers. The tragedy plays upon the irony, which acts upon fully drawn characters to make up a thoroughly modern work...You won't see a better production of this fascinating play...
The Record-Journal
When Henrik Ibsen...wrote HEDDA GABLER 110 years ago, a woman's place in society was far different from what it is today. The fact that this psychological drama plays as well now as it did a century ago is apt tribute to the sheer genius of the playwright.

The numerous typos render this edition impossible to read

A classic Henrik Ibsen story about a women trapped in her own societal standing, Hedda Gabler is a classic play everyone should read. This is short enough to read in one sitting. The plot isn't complicated to follow, and the most interesting thing is that while it's easy to identify with the protagonist , Hedda, you can never quite decide if you like her.

This book is excellent in that it delves into the complex relationships that spur a person's actions and reactions.
