Hedda Gabler tells the story of Hedda, the beautiful and intelligent daughter of General Gabler. She marries Jorgen Tesman out of desperation but soon realizes that life with him is dreadfully dull and tedious. Prompted by the return of an old lover and the advances of an amorous judge, Hedda begins a destructive downward spiral of jealousy and manipulation. Hedda’s attempts to regain control of her life and find freedom in a stifling society make her one of the great dramatic characters in the history of theatre.
In a searing and passionate adaptation by contemporary American playwright Christopher Shinn and directed by UA Theatre Professor James Slowiak, Ibsen’s classic work of modern drama continues to challenge audiences with its strong, controversial heroine and questions of society’s influence in determining personal identity and sexual role.
Celebrate with us the creative life and talent of Adel Migid, UA theatre faculty, as Hedda Gabler marks his 150th set design for the UA theatre stage!
Read the full story, then come experience the set live as it brings to life the world of Hedda Gabler - running Feb. 25 through March 5 on the Daum Theatre stage in Kolbe Hall.
“Christopher Shinn’s clear-headed, economical, and modern-sounding adaptation moves with surprising swiftness.” – Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press
“A thrilling new adaptation by Christopher Shinn, who puts a palpable present-day spin on the classic without punching you in the face.” – Brandon Voss, HX
