Hedda Gabler

Book Description

Ibsen's great social drama of a caged woman in the late nineteenth century explores her tormented desire for escape and her yearning for individual and spiritual freedom. Mr. Rudall's new translation makes Hedda Gabler beautifully speakable and playable for today's audiences.
