WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
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).
