Constrained and bored by a life that cannot fulfill her, Hedda Gabler manipulates others in order to exercise her own agency. In her attempts to create beauty, she enacts total poetic annihilation on everyone around her. “Her essence as elusive as the murky depths of our own tangled psyches” (The New York Times), Hedda Gabler walks the razor’s edge between sex and violence, birth and death, creation and destruction.
