Hedda Freeman - Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" is perhaps one of the most polarizing plays of the 19th century. Published at the height of Ibsen's fame and performed all across Europe, "Hedda Gabler" dares to study one woman's psychological drives, and how they are both influenced and informed by her surrounding socio-economic environment. About the play, Ibsen is quoted by saying: "It was not my purpose to deal with what people call problems in this play. What I principally wanted to do was to depict human beings, human emotions, and human destinies upon a groundwork of certain of the social conditions and principles of the present day." In this contemporary adaptation by Kamilah Bush and Justin P. Cowan, Hedda Freeman finds herself in a marriage and a society that she can't seem to reconcile or escape. Issues of race, privilege, identity, and destiny come to a dramatic head as Hedda struggles to define what freedom really means. click here
