Arriving home after an extended honeymoon Hedda Gabler struggles with an existence that is, for her, devoid of excitement and enchantment.
Filled with a passion for life that cannot be confined by her marriage of 'perfect home', Hedda strives to find a way to fulfil her desires by manipulating those around her...Richard Eyre will direct his own version Ibsen's play at the Almeida, opening in March 2005.
