Set in rural Ireland, John M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World follows a young man who swaggers into a small pub, telling grand tales and boasting of dark deeds. Instead of condemning him, the local men and ladies admire him. Not all is as it seems, however, and when the young stranger meets his match in a feisty, beautiful barmaid, there's an unexpected twist in the tale that threatens his moment in the spotlight. This dark, comedic masterpiece still packs the same punch as when it was originally produced at Dublin's Abbey Theatre in 1907. Learn More

Hedda was great - a young Faye Dunnaway - great job of presenting an attitude - both soft and very hard. The rest of the cast were all very believable in their roles, they were good, but you go to this play to see Hedda. The staging was very nice. It is a small older theatre, and it was nice to see that they put a lot of hard work into a beautiful staging. A big stage and they use all of it. Impressive.

Mackenzie Kyle (Hedda) was fastastic. Bravo to her! The rest of the cast did an impressive job also. The set design was marvelous. Another great show by the artists of Raven Theater. Stop reading this review and buy tickets already. ;-)
<p>Ibsen’s masterpiece depicts a woman’s inevitable road to tragedy. Hedda has recently married a kind and reliable yet unexciting scholar. She is visited by two old acquaintances: a female schoolmate and another scholar. The former has saved the latter from an unsavory lifestyle, helping him find success as a writer; Hedda is resentful both of his talent and her schoolmate’s influence on it. As Hedda resists the predictable world she has chosen, she unleashes a sequence of unfortunate events that brings her story to a shocking conclusion. Is Hedda a heroine, a villain, a victim… or all of the above?</p>
<p>Michael Menendian’s electrifying interpretation brings Hedda Gabler from the script to the stage with roaring tenacity and proves that the life of Hedda Gabler is still relevant to audiences today.
Hedda Gabler begs the question: How far would you go to escape?</p>
