Hedda Gabler

Produced by the Northeast Theatre Ensemble and presented as a fundraiser for Steamer No.10′s Finish the Castle Campaign – suggested donation $20.

Hedda Gabler has returned from an extended honeymoon with her kind but tediously academic husband. Beautiful, self-possessed and also haunted, she is already bored of marriage. Suffocated by bourgeois society and disdainful of intellectual pursuits, she tries to fulfill her aimless desires by manipulating the fates of those around her…with tragic results. Offering no easy answers, Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler is a fascinating, paradoxical portrait of a woman slipping into despair as her options narrow in a world expanding for both sexes.
