Playful, unpredictable, funny, free spirited and dangerous – there is no other character in drama like Hedda Gabler.

Arriving home after an extended honeymoon, Hedda struggles with an existence devoid of intimacy, excitement or enchantment. She has everything she said she wanted, and nothing she really desires.

Railing against a life of crippling convention, she turns to the lives of others; enchanting and beguiling them, bending them to her will, determined to be a woman of consequence, whatever the consequences. 

Played out swiftly over 36 hours, we watch Hedda struggle to maintain her hold on life as she realises the limits of her new existence.

Trapped in her new home, the clock is ticking and the walls are closing in, and this dangerously irresistible woman rushes headlong towards a disaster that will embrace all those who have fallen fatally under her spell. 

Experience Ibsen’s startlingly resonant masterpiece brought to life in OVO’s bold and thrilling new production - as fresh and shocking today as when it was originally produced over a century ago.
