Hedda Gabler (Almeida Theatre version)

By Henrik Ibsen Adapted by Richard Eyre

Paperback £10.99£8.79

EPUB £10.99£8.79

Richard Eyre's high-profile adaptation of Ibsen's famous 'problem play' about a headstrong woman's determination to control those around her.

Arriving home after an extended honeymoon, Hedda struggles with an existence that is, for her, devoid of excitement and enchantment. Filled with a passion for life that cannot be confined by her marriage or 'perfect home', Hedda strives to find a way to fulfil her desires by manipulating those around her.

Richard Eyre's adaptation of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler was premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in 2005.

Included in this volume is an introduction to the play by Richard Eyre.

Press Quotes

'A triumph... Eyre's dialogue is forceful, clear, with just enough idiomatic dash'

Observer

'Hedda is often regarded as the female Hamlet. But Eyre reminds us that it is a great polyphonic play as well as a commanding title-role'

Guardian

'Hedda Gabler still has the power to shock'

Independent on Sunday

'Thrilling... re-administers, as if for the first time, the devastating shock and the sheer affront of Ibsen's drama'
