Hedda Gabler

“Christopher Shinn’s clear-headed, economical, and modern-sounding adaptation moves with surprising swiftness.” – Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

The University of Akron (UA) Theatre Program continues its 2015-2016 season with Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler at Daum Theatre in Kolbe Hall, 328 Buchtel Commons.

In a searing and passionate adaptation by contemporary American playwright Christopher Shinn and directed by UA Theatre Professor James Slowiak, Ibsen’s classic work of modern drama continues to challenge audiences with its strong, controversial heroine and questions of society’s influence in determining personal identity and sexual role. This production of Hedda Gabler also marks the 150th University of Akron production designed by theatre professor and scenic artist Adel Migid. Costumes are designed by Adrienne Jones and lighting design by Chris Hariasz.

Hedda Gabler tells the story of Hedda, the beautiful and intelligent daughter of General Gabler. She marries Jorgen Tesman out of desperation but soon realizes that life with him is dreadfully dull and tedious. Prompted by the return of an old lover and the advances
