Hedda Gabler at the Abbey
A wife, a muse, a coward, a heretic.
Hedda Gabler is something to everyone, yet has no idea who she is to herself. Trapped by convention and by her own irreconcilable nature, will she have the resolve to shape her own destiny?
Mark O’Rowe brings his unique linguistic style to this daring new adaptation which is directed by the award-winning Annabelle Comyn (The House).
