• National Theatre Live: “Hedda Gabbler”
Thursday, March 30, 7 p.m.
Just married and bored already, Hedda longs to be free. Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon, and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control those around her, only to see her own world unravel.
Tony Award-winning director Ivo van Hove (“A View from the Bridge” at the Young Vic Theatre) directs this modern production of Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece. Ruth Wilson (“Luther,” “The Affair,” “Jane Eyre”) plays the title role in a new adaptation by Patrick Marber (“Notes on a Scandal,” “Closer”).
“Hedda Gabbler” is recommended for ages 12 and up.
