Miami theatre presents: "Hedda Gabler"

11/13/2009

Left to right: Zach Guiler, Caroline David, and Wendy Jobes, lead characters in Miami’s production of “Hedda Gabler.”
“Hedda Gabler,” by Henrik Ibsen, will be presented by the Miami University department of theatre at 8 p.m. Nov. 19-21 and Dec. 3-5, and at 2 p.m. Dec. 6, in Gates-Abegglen Theatre in the Center for Performing Arts.

The 11th annual John D. Yeck production is a new adaptation of Ibsen’s work by Jon Robin Baitz, directed by Paul K. Bryant-Jackson, professor of theatre at Miami. The story revolves around Hedda, a wealthy young woman, who has just been wed to George Tesman, an aspiring professor. Very little holds their marriage together, however, as it becomes apparent that Hedda and George have next to nothing in common. When George’s scholarly rival, Ejlert Lovborg, begins gaining ground in a competition for a coveted academic post, jealousy and desperation pervade their marriage.

Tickets, $9 for adults, $8 for seniors and $6 for Miami students and youth under 18, are available at the box office, 529-3200, or online, www.tickets.muohio.edu
