Just married. Buried alive. 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.
A new adaptation and a strikingly modern production of Ibsen's masterpiece from writer Patrick Marber, and the Tony Award – winning director of the Young Vic's A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE Ivo van Hove features Ruth Wilson in the title role, Kyle Soller as sexless husband Tesman, Rafe Spall as Brack, the charismatic alternative to wedded boredom and Chukwudi Iwuji as her brilliant-minded ex-lover Lovborg.
'An invigorating production which forces us to see Ibsen's masterpiece with fresh eyes.' Guardian
‘Ruth Wilson is phenomenal.' Time Out
‘One of the performances and productions of the year.’ Daily Telegraph
Running Time: 2 hours, 40 mins including interval.
