Ever been stuck in a REALLY bad relationship?
This classic drama goes deep down the dark path with Hedda Gabler, a young woman in a rigid, Victorian-era society who finds herself too strong and independent for the time she lives in. Trapped in a stultifying marriage, she desperately reaches for the slightest shred of self-control - even if it means taking everyone else down with her.
The Department of Theatre Arts and Dance presents "Hedda Gabler," playing until Nov. 20 in Ives Studio 76. Written by Henrik Ibsen, translated by Doug Houghes, and directed by SSU's Judy Navas, "Hedda Gabler" offers audiences a special opportunity to see young actors test their mettle with some of the richest characters in dramatic literature.
No one captured the depths of the human psyche like Henrik Ibsen, the father of modern drama, who scandalized Europe and revolutionized the dramatic form in 1890 with this powerful tragedy about Hedda's struggle for freedom and control. Director Judy Navas's exciting production will stage this classic in the intensely intimate atmosphere of the Ives 76 black-box performance space.
