Overview

Universally condemned in 1890 when it was written, Hedda Gabler has since become one of Ibsen's most frequently performed plays. Its title role is elusive and complex: Hedda is an intelligent and ambitious woman, who has no means of finding personal fulfilment in the stifling world of late nineteenth-century bourgeois society. Too frightened of scandal to become involved with a brilliant, wayward writer, she opts for a conventional but loveless marriage in the hope of finding surrogate fulfilment through her husband's career. Blending comedy and tragedy disconcertingly together, Ibsen probes the thwarted aspirations and hidden anxieties of his characters against a background of contemporary social conditions and attitudes.

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.

Meet the Author

Only Shakespeare's plays are performed more frequently than those of Henrik Ibsen (1828–1906). The Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet scandalized many of his contemporaries as he led the theater into the modern era by exploring the realities behind 19th-century social conventions.

    A Must Read Classic Play

    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.

    Understanding Hedda

    I really enjoyed Hedda Gabler. The plot was very interesting.i thought it was going to be about something completely different. After Hedda and her new husband came back from their honeymoon she really realized that she wasn't in love--i find that totally horriable to marry only for status and not for love. Through the different sub plroblems the main plot took awhile to unveil itself. without ruining the end i would like to say that the betrayle of the whole thing really got me. To really understand what im saying read the book!!!
