Norway's National Theatre performs Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler
. Considered scandalous in its day, this powerful and emotionally potent work examines the life of an ambitious, talented woman trapped by obligation and societal conventions in a boring and loveless marriage. One of modern theater's most infamous protagonists, Hedda Gabler lies, cheats, schemes and steals to escape her own boredom, heedless of the consequences to those around her, until the bitter end. Norway's National Theatre has long been associated with the late Norwegian playwright's boundary-pushing work. Originally created for the National Theatre's 2010 Ibsen Festival, Peer Perez Øian's smart, streamlined production challenges our traditional understanding of Ibsen's famously tormented heroine, while questioning motivation, freedom and choice in today's society. The show is performed in Norwegian with English supertitles.
