Photo Flash: First Look at Sheridan Smith and More in HEDDA GABLER at the Old Vic

Legally Blonde's Sheridan Smith will star in the Old Vic's production of HEDDA GABLER by Henrik Ibsen, in a version by Brian Friel directed by Anna Mackmin. The production opens on 12 September for a run until the 10th of Novemeber.  BroadwayWorld has a first look at the show below.

This major new production will star Olivier award-winning actress Sheridan Smith in the title role with Buffy Davis as Bertha, Anne Reid as Juliana Tesman, Adrian Scarborough as George Tesman and Fenella Woolgar as Thea Elvsted.

Anna Mackmin directs with composer Paul Englishby, Lez Brotherston as designer, lighting by Mark Henderson, sound by Simon Baker and casting by Sarah Bird.

Ibsen’s brilliant masterpiece on the conflict of the requirements of society and those of the individual explores the corrosive descent of Hedda Gabler into the treacherous void between expectation and reality. The general’s daughter has married the respectable academic Tesman - a husband she despises as mediocre – and now, driven by fear and loathing, Hedda’s despair goads her independent spirit to a rage expressed in the wilful contamination of life around her which eventually leads to disaster for her and all those beguiled by her.

Performances are Mon–Sat 7.30pm; Wed & Sat 2.30pm. Please note there are no matinee performances on Wed 5 Sept, Sat 8 Sept or Wed 12 Sept.

Tickets are £11, £16, £21, £28, £40, £50 (Previews £5 off top three price bands, Old Vic Friends & Club Members an additional £2.50 off top three price bands) from http://www.oldvictheatre.com/.
