Directed by TOM DUGDALE
Henrik Ibsen's female characters crave for freedom and, burning down everything in their way, want to be torn apart from the moors of false pretences. Similarly, Hedda Gabler will not tolerate the surrounding hipocrisy and conventions, but she is as coward and false as the society she despises. Still, she can not escape the illusion that she herself has created, not even for the price of her own life.
The American director Tom Dugdale is
already experienced in Hungarian theatres in Romania. Dugdale reconsiders
classical texts, experiemting with them freely in order to bring them closer to
the contemporary audience.
I believed I would go wherever I wanted to go.
I believed I would love whoever I wanted to love.
I believed I would eat all I wanted to eat.
I believed I would sleep as much as I wanted to sleep.
I believed there would be no pain.
I believed people would listen when I spoke.
I believed I would love my family.
I believed I would love my life.
But I don't.
