Hedda Gabler

Author(s): Henrik Ibsen

Hedda Gabler

Arriving home after an extended honeymoon, Hedda struggles with an existence devoid of intimacy, excitement or enchantment. She has everything she said she wanted, and nothing she really desires.

Railing against a life of crippling convention, she turns to the lives of others; enchanting and beguiling them, bending them to her will, determined to be a woman of consequence, whatever the consequences.
