The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to present Hedda, the world premiere adaptation of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler through the darkly comic and absurd lens of playwright Carol Brown.
Returning to Norway from a three-month honeymoon abroad, Hedda Gabler finds herself trapped in an unfurnished house, surrounded by her uninspiring and academic husband. Trapped by moving boxes. Trapped by talks of academia. Trapped.
The sudden inflow of guests and ghosts from the past provide Hedda the opportunity to stir the pot, creating some brief diversions to pass the time. As her actions continue to alter the lives of those around her, Hedda propels herself closer and closer to the brink of insanity.
The cast is comprised of Carol Brown (The Good Wife"), Tim Thomas (original company of Into the Woods), Madeleine Rogers (Juilliard), Max Samuels (Angry Young Man), and Mike Labbadia (cofounder of Produced by Actors).
HERE is an award-winning, boundary-stretching institution.

NYMIF is thrilled for the return of North Coast! Fresh off their off-Broadway run at the Connelly Theater, this powerhouse team presents ANYBODY: An Improvised Hip-Hopera.

The Plurality of Privacy Project in Five-Minute Plays (P3M5) is a transatlantic theater project initiated to explore the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the United States and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays themed around the question, "What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?" The results are being presented in different formats by a network of theaters between January 2017 and June 2018. These performances, staged readings, and community forums create an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.
Note: Performance dates and locations vary. For more information, visit the Goethe-Institut website (URL below).
Detailing the exploits of two American men who travel to Amsterdam to hire a female prostitute, Adam Rapp's Red Light Winter confronts the expectations of fantasy, the disappointment of reality, and the complexities of unrequited love — a twisted and complicated web, spanning Amsterdam's Red Light District to the East Village.
The Bridge Production Group is thrilled to feature Red Light Winter as part of The Bridge Residency: a monthlong residency at the Robert Moss Theater, presenting Red Light Winter in rotating repertory with Hedda and The Sonnets.
Red Light Winter contains explicit language and simulated sex, and is recommended for mature audiences.
