I’m a very sick girl. Apparently. These impulses come over me and I just can’t help it.

Hedda returns from her honeymoon to an empty marriage, an unfulfilling existence and a pregnancy she doesn’t want. Driven by an unthinking desire for power, she manipulates those around her to devastating effect.

In this bold contemporary version of Henrik Ibsen’s original, Critics’ Circle Award-winner Lucy Kirkwood brings the enigmatic Hedda into a modern world full of crisis, Oxford academics and destabilising gender roles. 

Inciting questions of identity, moral equivocation, and the psychology behind destruction, University of Oxford student company Peripeteia Productions opens one of the greatest plays in history for re-examination.
