Hedda Gabler is a woman of spirit and guile, fighting to be more than someone's daughter and someone else's wife. But the seasons change, and her battles give way to an ominous composure as she prepares to transcend her imprisonment and determine her own fate.

Andrew Upton unravels the mystery of Ibsen's masterpiece and constructs a psychological thriller of cinematic intensity and power. His superb adaptation gives Australian readers a fresh and exciting insight into one of the great dramatic works of modern literature.
