From Palimpsest Theatre group: “Hedda is a new version of Hedda Gabler by Ibsen, told in one hour and fifteen minutes by a company of RSC / NT actors and award-winning director, Patrick Sandford. It is an exploration of the last forty hours of a woman’s life.
We have created a piece of live theatre that is amplified by a short film embedded in a website illicitly exploring Hedda Gabler’s private scrapbook. The site displays a collage of disquieting information about some of the characters in the play, their circumstances and motivation, as discovered in Hedda’s book. The audience can explore this content in the days, hours or even minutes before and after the site specific performances at various venues in and around London in Spring 2014.”
