Ibsen’s fiercest leading lady lands poolside on the Gold Coast Hedda Gabler is railing against her life. She didn’t marry bogan drug slinger George Tesman so she could play housewife in a monstrous Gold Coast mansion with white leather couches, blingy chandeliers and endless rounds of Aperol Spritz.
She wants something much more. Now her old flame, Ejlert Løvborg, is out of prison and off the junk. Is he about to slice off a piece of George’s empire? Maybe Hedda can pull some strings to work this to her advantage.
Logie Award-winning actor Danielle Cormack (Wentworth, Rake) is the Hedda we’ve all been waiting to see. Melissa Bubnic gives us a local version of the Henrik Ibsen classic that is as dangerous and surprising as its heroine.
A re-imagining of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler By Melissa Bubnic Directed by Paige Rattray
The role of Hedda Gabler is considered the female acting equivalent of Hamlet.
"Bubnic’s script is bitingly funny and no one is spared the lash"–The Sydney Morning Herald
