Our first production of 2023 is quickly approaching! Annie Kershaw directs Harriet Madeley’s electrifying modern adaptation of the Ibsen classic Hedda Gabler. A version steeped in queer rage and suburban monotony, exploring how the most famous female character of all time is trapped within a life chosen for her.
