By Henrik Ibsen and adapted by Joanna Murray-Smith.

A heroine. A victim. A villain. Hedda Gabler is all of these and more—a woman filled with a restless passion for life that cannot be satisfied by her marriage or her perfect home. Henrik Ibsen’s towering classic will be given a sharp contemporary adaptation by Joanna Murray-Smith (The Female of the Species, Lovechild, Honour).

Reared to take her place as a society hostess but without the means to support such a lifestyle after her father’s death, Hedda is trapped in a loveless marriage and must live out her life according to a set of standards totally alien to her upbringing.

As she strives to find a way to fulfil her desires, an old flame from the past reappears—the brilliant Lovborg whose prodigal talent serves to highlight the dull and plodding world of her husband. The connection cannot be resisted and leads to violent and tragic events even she could not have predicted or control.

Leading an outstanding cast, we are excited to bring one of Australia’s brightest young theatrical talents, Alison Bell (ABC’s Laid, Belvoir’s The Book of Everything, Sydney Theatre Company’s Doubt), to Adelaide to wrestle with one of modern drama’s most powerful and charismatic figures.
