About Hedda

“I don’t even know always what sets it off but when it happens, I’m not responsible for what I say or what I do.”

Experience a brand new version of Henrik Ibsen’s classic Hedda Gabler written by Here to There's Artistic Director, Andrew Whittle.

Arriving home from an extended honeymoon Hedda struggles to come to terms with her fledgling marriage. Having married for money not love she finds herself already bored with married life and, in particular, her new husband.

Brought up in a sheltered environment Hedda had yearned for years to be married, to grasp life by the throat and enjoy herself, but instead feels trapped, buried alive with years of tedious, intolerable life ahead of her.

She plots to break that tedium by manipulating & toying with the lives of those around her…with consequences far greater than she could have foreseen.
