Hedda Tesman

Hedda TesmanT0745477241
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.
Author Cordelia Lynn (after Henrik Ibsen)
