A Paper Mouth Theatre production
Hedda Gabler was a Feminist battle-cry in 1891, but 129 years later, do we need more stories about bourgeois angst and pretty-dead-women?
Each night, three women will compete against each other to decide who will play Hedda in each scene. The roles will not be predetermined. The competitions will be real.
Blurring the worlds of fiction and reality, Hedda GablerGablerGabler interrogates the actors’ personal dedication to this iconic part. Why are we so obsessed with Hedda? What does it mean to play her? And how should we interact with a literary canon that prioritises the experiences of the privileged?
Paper Mouth Theatre will partner with Frenetic Theatre to bring a fully realised production of Hedda GablerGablerGabler to La Mama Courthouse from April 27th to May 3rd. [POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19]
