Hedda Gabler

Kenan Auditorium

Fri Sep 12th, 2014 - Sat Sep 13th, 2014

 Saturday 07:30 p.m. - 09:30 p.m.


William Peace University's Dramatic Irony Club presents Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen.

Hedda Gabler finds herself trapped by society in a world that does not fit her. To survive, she sets in motion an array of schemes, sowing seeds of calculated destruction in an attempt to make an impact on her husband, friends and lovers.

The result is a journey of impulse and emotion that is both achingly desperate and wildly passionate.

Director Jason Bailey and a cast of William Peace's student actors (and one faculty member!) bring their shared passion to this master work, offering the audience a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with one of the most extraordinary and seductive characters in the dramatic canon.

The production is student-led by Katie Barrett '16 and (depending on the night) stars: Katie Barrett '16, Melvin Gray '16, Chris Haskins '17, Dr. Wade Newhouse, Rebekah Meekins '17, Miranda Millang '17, Talia Pittman '16 and Joshua Walker '16.

FREE ADMISSION with student, faculty or staff I.D., or for Season Ticket Holders.

FREE ADMISSION for the General Public. Check-in at the door.
