Photo Flash: First Look at Ophelia Theatre Group's HEDDA GABLER

Hedda Gabler, presented by Ophelia Theatre Group, opens this Friday in Astoria. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

All at once magnificent and terrifying, Hedda Gabler has given up her exciting high society life to settle down as the wife of an academic. But an old flame's return resurrects old rivalries, shifts power dynamics and leaves one of the most iconic female characters of all time wondering: how can I be a woman when I have no talent for it? Stripped-down and streamlined, this fast, tense and surprisingly funny adaptation of Ibsen's drawing-room classic, gallops towards an electrifying finale

In the cast are Kaitlyn Schirard (Hedda Gabler), Lebron Lackey (Eilert Lovborg), Glenn Stoops* (Judge Brack), David De Almo* (George Tesman), and Maya Carter (Thea Elvsted). *Actors appearing courtesy of Actors' Equity Association.
