The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
One of literature’s most complex and compelling anti-heroines, the beautiful and intelligent Hedda yearns to escape her marriage to a man she finds numbingly dull. Suffocated by the expectations and limitations of bourgeois society, she tries to fulfill her aimless desires by manipulating the fates of those around her – no matter how dark the outcome. First produced in 1891, Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece shocked European society; now, 125 years later, it continues to challenge audiences. Hedda Gabler marks the Antaeus Theatre Company’s final production in North Hollywood as the company prepares to move to a newly renovated cultural arts complex in Glendale this fall.
