Hedda Gabler focuses on the frustrated existence of its title character, exploring core issues of power, control, and social expectation. Bored and restricted by her middle-class environment, Hedda plays out her own fantasies and psychological games with those nearest to her to an ultimately costly end.

Roles to be Cast:

Hedda Tesman (née Gabler) — (Stage age late 20s – 30s.) The main character, newly married and bored with both her marriage and life, seeking to influence a human fate for the first time. She is the daughter of General Gabler (an aristocrat). She believes she is an aristocrat, yet she has no funds.

George (Jørgen) Tesman — (Stage age late 20s – 30s.) Hedda’s husband, an academic who is as interested in research and travel as he is enamored with his wife, although blind to Hedda’s manipulative ways.

Juliana (Juliane) Tesman — (Stage age 60+.) George’s loving aunt who has raised him since early childhood. Desperately wants Hedda and her nephew to have a child.

Thea Elvsted — (Stage age late 20s – 30s.) A younger schoolmate of Hedda and a former acquaintance of George. Nervous and shy, Thea is in an unhappy marriage.

Judge Brack — (Stage age 45 – 55.) An unscrupulous family friend. It is implied that the Judge has a lascivious personality, which he directs towards Hedda.

Eilert Lövborg (Ejlert Løvborg) — (Stage age late 20s – 30s.) George’s former colleague, who now competes with George to achieve publication and a teaching position. Eilert was once in love with Hedda. Destroyed his reputation in society by spending his money on depravity.

Bertha (Berte) — (Stage age 45+.) A servant of the Tesman’s. Wants to please Hedda at all times.
