Why See Hedda Gabler?

Olivier Award-winner, Sheridan Smith stars in the title role of this major new production alongside Buffy Davis, Anne Reid, Adrian Scarborough and Fenella Woolgar.

Ibsen’s brilliant masterpiece on the conflict of the requirements of society and those of the individual, explores the descent of Hedda Gabler into the treacherous void between expectation and reality.
