Synopsis: 

 

Set in the Norwegian home of George and Hedda Tesman near the turn of the twentieth century, Hedda is a woman struggling in a world that is, for her, devoid of excitement and enchantment. Filled with a lust for life, Hedda is consumed with a passion that is uncontrolable within the confines of her bourgeois existence.

 

PLAYWRIGHT:  Henrik Ibsen (March 20, 1828 – May 23, 1906) was a major Norwegian playwright who was largely responsible for the rise of the modern realistic drama. His plays were considered scandalous to many of his era, when Victorian values of family life and propriety largely held sway in Europe and any challenge to them was considered immoral and outrageous. Ibsen's work examined the realities that lay behind many facades, possessing a revelatory nature that was disquieting to many contemporaries.
