Hedda

Henrik Ibsen (adapted by Lucy Kirkwood)
 
Hedda, still mourning for the father she adored, returns from honeymoon with a husband she doesn't love, to a flat and a pregnancy she doesn't want. Trapped by her past and terrified of her future, bored by her life but too cowardly to walk away from it, she finds herself caught between three men. And in the end, something has to give ...

In this new version by Lucy Kirkwood, Ibsen's nineteenth-century heroine is relocated in present-day London to startling effect. Like a freshly cleaned old master, Hedda and her predicament emerge with new force and psychological thruth.

Review
'Ibsen's 19th-century masterpiece relocated thrillingly to London 2008... Kirkwood makes us believe absolutely in this modern-day world of mountainous mortgages and bitchy academia .'  London Evening Standard
