Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, written in 1890, follows the stepping of a refined but complex woman, newly wed and recently returned from her honeymoon. Trying to remedy the dissatisfaction and boredom with her own condition of life, she makes decisions that change the course of the lives of the people around her, and eventually her own.
The play unravels the lives of Hedda and George Tessman, seemingly perfect on the surface, to reveal how nothing and nobody is exactly as it seems.
The play takes place in the late 19th Century Norway, inside the Tessman's new home for the duration of two eventful days divided strategically into four acts.
George Tessman, a scholar
Hedda Tessman, his wife
Judge Brack, an influential and wealthy judge
Miss Tessman, George's Aunt
Berta, the housemaid
Eilert Lovborg, a colleague and competitor of George
Mrs. Elvsted, sheriff's wife
