“I am not like other women…don’t you understand?”

It is mid-September, 1963, Vancouver is emerging from the 1950’s and is on the cusp of the radical changes the 1960’s will bring.  Hedda Gabler, a young society woman, is returning from her six month honeymoon in Europe.  Her adoring new husband, George, is about to receive a professorship, and they are moving into an architect-designed house in West Van.  It seems she has it all – but she is bored stiff.  When Hedda’s former lover arrives in town to publicize his brilliant new book, she seizes the chance to give her life meaning, but events quickly flow out of control and lead to a shocking climax.

At the core of this drama is the complex and contradictory character of Hedda. Referred to as the ‘female Hamlet’, the role has been played by many famous actors; Eleonora Duse, Ingrid Bergman and Cate Blanchett amongst others.

Hedda Gabler continues to be performed worldwide since its premiere in 1891.  Courtenay Little Theatre's production employs Judith Thompson's 2017 adaptation, and sets the play in Vancouver, 1963.

Come out and see an exciting new take on a classic drama!
