Hedda // Oxford Playhouse // 6th Week // Wed 21- Sat 24 Feb

PERIPETEIA PRODUCTIONS presents Henrik Ibsen’s HEDDA in a new adaptation by Lucy Kirkwood, at the Oxford Playhouse 21st-24th February 2018 (6th week Hilary Term.)

“Maybe I will. Find something beautiful. Something I’m good at something- I’m something that... I’m something, must be something.”

Hedda

returns from her honeymoon to an empty marriage, an unfulfilling existence and a pregnancy she doesn’t want. Driven by an unthinking desire for power and beauty, Hedda attempts to manipulate those around her to devastating effect.

In this bold new version of Henrik Ibsen’s original, Critics’ Circle award winner Lucy Kirkwood brings the enigmatic Hedda into a modern world full of dry wit, Oxford academics, and identity crisis.

In 2018, the centenary of female suffrage, Peripeteia Productions asks of one of the greatest plays in history- how far has society truly come in creating a space for women? With Elizabeth Robins the first woman to play Hedda in the UK 125 years ago, we are delighted to be sharing this very special production as part of the Oxford Playhouse’s VOTE season.

---------

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing exclusive content, videos and interviews... Stay tuned for more.

We are delighted that Lucy Kirkwood will be in conversation with modern theatre and Ibsen expert, Kristen Shephard-Barr at 5pm before our Friday performance. Tickets for this are free with a ticket to any performance of Hedda. Ticket details can be found at: http://www.oxfordplayhouse.com/whats-on/all-shows/in-conversation-with-lucy-kirkwood/8295
