Ibsen's simmering, shimmering tale of a woman too large for her destiny gets a fresh adaptation, streamlined into a gilded juggernaut of secrecy and manipulation. Wandering Bark creates a collision of past and present to build a Hedda where the story's the same, but The Devil's in the details.

Hedda Tesman (née Gabler) has everything, but wants none of it. Sealed in the coffin of a big house, a convenient marriage to a boring husband, and a dead-end existence as a woman in a man's world, Hedda can do nothing but dream and decay. But when an old flame flickers back under her palm, her hungry heart ignites a blaze of lust, deceit, and manipulation that could consume more lives than just her own.
