As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock gets to grip with Ibsen care of Lazarus Theatre company’s new ensemble take on Hedda Gabler at London’s Greenwich Theatre. Got any questions?
After 2019 season productions of The Tempest, Lord of the Flies and Salome, I’m delighted to reunite with Lazarus Theatre to chair a series of post-show debates with the company for their 2020 residency at Greenwich Theatre: Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler and JM Barrie’s Peter Pan.
“Well, I shall have one thing at least to kill time with in the meanwhile. My pistols, George…” Intelligent and ambitious Hedda is newly married and suffocating. Her pursuit of her own identity and survival leads to one of the most dramatic climaxes in stage history.
Ibsen’s searing masterpiece Hedda Gabler comes to the stage in this blistering new version adapted by Lazarus Associate Director Sara Reimers. This ensemble production features as the second offering in the company’s third year-long residency at Greenwich Theatre. Hedda Gabler is produced in association with The Greenwich Theatre and is part of our Greenwich Made / Greenwich Played residency.
Note: This production is suitable for patrons aged 14 plus. Contains haze, gunshots and scenes of a violent nature.
