Secret House and Seymour Centre present

Hedda Gabler

by Henrik Ibsen

7 - 23 May 2020

"One of Ibsen's greatest plays."

The Sydney Morning Herald

 

Fresh from their acclaimed independent productions of Crime and Punishment and The Seagull, Secret House debut another realist classic.

 

Bored by life and feeling trapped in a stifling marriage, Hedda Gabler, one of Ibsen’s most famous and vivid anti-heroines, struggles to break free from social norms with tragic results.

 

For Hedda, the everyday is a negative force that affords her no meaning. Her intense sense of boredom quickly becomes aggression. Its ferocity shatters everything in its path, including Hedda herself.

 

Often described as the female Hamlet, Hedda Gabler places a complicated and controversial character at the centre of its story and raises important questions about mental health, conformity, manipulation, addiction and suicide.
