A Chichester Festival Theatre, Headlong and The Lowry co-production
A Week 53 Commission

A doting husband. A troubled writer. A loaded gun. It’s 2019 and Hedda Tesman returns to a life she can’t seem to escape.

After thirty years of playing wife, Hedda is bitter and bored. When her estranged daughter, Thea, suddenly reappears asking for help, the present begins to echo the past and Hedda embarks on a path of destruction.

Cordelia Lynn’s Hedda Tesman breathes new life into Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, asking what we inherit, what we endure and how we carry our history. Holly Race Roughan directs this vital exploration of motherhood, power and sabotage.

Haydn Gwynne will play the title role of Hedda Tesman. Among her many notable roles are Mrs Wilkinson in ‘Billy Elliot’ (West End and Broadway), Margaret Thatcher in ‘The Audience’ (West End) and Mrs Peachum in ‘The Threepenny Opera’ (National Theatre), while her innumerable TV series include ‘Peak Practice’, ‘Mersey Beat’, ‘Dalziel and Pasco’, ‘Rome’, ‘Drop the Dead Donkey’ and ‘The Windsors’.

Venue: Quays Theatre
