Production synopsis “I’ve no talent for life.”
Just married. Buried alive. Hedda longs to be free…
The newly-married Hedda and George Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. A self-absorbed and very bored Hedda feels trapped but is determined to control those around her.
Hedda‘s scheming and manipulative behaviour causes catastrophic consequences for herself and for others. Ultimately, as her own world unravels, Hedda realises that there is only one way to be free.
