Hedda Gabler is railing against her life. She didn’t marry bogan drug slinger George Tesman so she could play housewife in a monstrous Gold Coast mansion with white leather couches, blingy chandeliers and endless rounds of Aperol Spritz.
She wants something much more. Now her old flame, Ejlert LÃ¸vborg, is out of prison and off the junk. Is he about to slice off a piece of George’s empire? Maybe Hedda can pull some strings to work this to her advantage.
The World Premiere season of Hedda was produced by Queensland Theatre, and performed at the Bille Brown Theatre from 10 November to 8 December 2018.
