This classic play was well done by Scena Theater. The set designers made good use of the limited H St. Playhouse space. Loved the costumes made for Hedda Gabler's main character. Thoroughly enjoyed the play!

More Information



Ibsen’s place in modern drama is without parallel. He was a visionary, a harbinger of the modern dilemma who helped create modern theatre. His plays such as A Doll’s House, Peer Gynt, and Hedda Gabler set the tone for much of what happens on today’s stages. And, by employing Irish playwright Friel’s 2008 adaptation, SCENA highlights these modern aspects of the play as well as celebrates another great international playwright.

The cast of Hedda Gabler includes accomplished D.C. actors Kerry Waters, Lee Ordeman, Rena Cherry Brown, Mary Suib, Eric Lucas, Danielle Davy and Jim Jorgensen.
