Hedda Gabler

By Henrik Ibsen

Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre, this modern production of Ibsen’s masterpiece Hedda Gabler comes to The Lowry.
  • Venue: The Lyric Theatre

Just married. Buried alive. Hedda longs to be free… 

Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to control and manipulate those around her, only to see her own world unravel. 

This modern production of Ibsen’s thrilling masterpiece is brought to bold new life by Olivier Award-winning playwright Patrick Marber (Closer) and directed by Olivier and Tony Award®-winner Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge). 

From the producers of War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Jane Eyre, this critically acclaimed production comes to The Lowry following a sold out run at the National Theatre. Lizzy Watts plays the title role of the free-spirited Hedda Gabler, one of the greatest dramatic parts in theatre and regarded as the female Hamlet.
