I didn't know the story and expected something more interesting. The story itself is pretty boring. The actors were great, except the ending (he shouldn't wipe his hands on the stage it brokel know what I'm taling about if you will see the play).
By Henrik Ibsen
Adapted by Brian Friel
Hedda returns from her honeymoon dissatisfied, anticipating a life of tedious convention. Aided and abetted by her predatory confidante, Judge Brack, she begins to manipulate the fates of those around her to devastating effect. Brian Friel’s new version – taking liberties that only a master playwright might – invests Ibsen’s social realist original with psychological truth, presenting Hedda’s gradual mental breakdown as the inevitable consequence of an entirely inflexible social structure.
