HEDDA, an intricate relationship drama based on Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, focuses on a dinner party. Newlyweds Hedda and Jorgen try to secure Jorgen’s promotion by wining and dining the department head, Dr. Brack. However, there are two surprise guests: Jorgen’s ex-lover Thea and Hedda’s lost lover Eilert, who also threatens Jorgen’s career move. Hedda becomes intimate with Eilert again in a moment of freedom, but seems to side with Jorgen in the end, to Eilert’s desperation. When confronted with Eilert’s alcoholic self-pity, she coldly facilitates his suicide. Hedda, surprised and tragically desperate in the knowledge that her husband Jorgen is willing to sacrifice her to secure his position and a life of passion and freedom is forever lost, puts an end to her life.
