Patrick Marber’s thrilling adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler is set to tour the UK this winter following a sold-out run at the National Theatre’s Lyttelton Theatre.
Just married. Bored already. Hedda longs to be free…
This vital new version of Ibsen’s literary masterpiece by Olivier and Tony Award-winning playwright Marber (Closer, Three Days in the Country) is directed by Ivo van Hove, one of the world’s most exciting directors.
Olivier and Tony Award-winning van Hove made his NT debut with Hedda Gabler, which is running in repertoire at the South Bank theatre until March 21.
His acclaimed production of A View from the Bridge recently played to sold out houses at the Young Vic, in the West End and on Broadway.
Patrick Marber said: “It has been a huge honour to work with the great Ivo van Hove on this version of Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre. I am thrilled that this tour will enable more people to see his incredible production”.
The National Theatre’s current production of Hedda Gabler with Ruth Wilson in the title role will be broadcast by NT Live to cinemas around the world on March 9 with encore performances from March 23.
Casting for the tour to be announced.
