by Henrik Ibsen
Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece, Hedda Gabler, features Pear Artistic Director Elizabeth Kruse Craig in the title role of Hedda: a woman confined by society, living a hated life because convention tells her to, and because she is too afraid to subvert it. The results are powerful; women identified with Hedda, used her as a voice for their unhappiness, and men were astounded and repulsed, unaware that this radical character could have such an effect. Both recognise her complexities and contradictions, and eventually see her in themselves. Hedda is the exploration of humanity that Ibsen intended; she also embodies his own emotional repression.
