SEPTEMBER 16th and 17th.
Torshovteatret

The performance will be performed in Norwegian.
Duration: 1 hour and 50 minutes (without intermission).

How can someone so beautiful be raving mad? Has she lost her grip on reality? What is wrong with Hedda Gabler?

We are still captivated by this mysterious character. She is attractive, unpleasant and manipulative. Why?

Teater Innlandet's version of the Ibsen classic is rough, funny and vivid, and the actress in the eponymous role, Ragne Grande, has been critically acclaimed for her interpretation of Hedda Gabler. But Hedda is not the only fascinating aspect – the production contains many enthralling human portraits in a compelling and exciting reality. The scenography is in itself a psychological situation report, framing a clear, powerful and insightful performance.

The script has been modernized by director Lars Erik Holter, and the production was played at Teater Innlandet in autumn 2015.
