Lucy Kirkwood's HEDDA - Straz Center

Straz Center LogoHedda (Emily Belvo), still mourning the father she adored, returns from her honeymoon with a husband (Chris Marshall) she doesn’t love, to a flat they can’t afford and a pregnancy she doesn’t want. Trapped by her past and terrified by her future, bored by her life but too cowardly to walk away from it, she finds herself caught between three men (Marshall, Joseph Michael-Kenneth, Jon VanMiddlesworth). Ultimately, something has to give. In this updated version of Ibsen’s classic, set in present-day London, thrilling young British playwright Lucy Kirkwood reworks the Hedda Gabler tale into a daring glimpse at her choices from a woman’s point of view.

Directed by Stuart Fail. Starring Emily Belvo, Christopher Marshall, Katrina Stevenson, Katie Miesner, Joseph Michael-Kenneth, and Jon Van Middlesworth. Designs by Scott Cooper (set), Jo Averill-Snell (lights), Katrina Stevenson (costumes), and Jeremy Douglass (original compositions).
