Hedda Gabler


“I’ve no talent for life.”

Just married. Bored already. Hedda longs to be free…

Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble.
Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control those around her, only to see her own world unravel.

This acclaimed new production of Ibsen’s masterpiece Hedda Gabler comes to Royal & Derngate  following a sold out run at the National Theatre. Adapted by Olivier Award-winning playwright Patrick Marber (Closer, Three Days in the Country) and directed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winner Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge), who made his National Theatre debut with this bold and modern new production. Lizzy Watts plays the title role of the free-spirited Hedda Gabler, one of the greatest dramatic parts in theatre and regarded as the female Hamlet.
