Book Discussion: Hedda Gabler by Henrik Ibsen Monday June 3rd at 7:00pm
Hedda Gabler is a play first published in 1890 by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. The play premiered in 1891 in Germany to negative reviews, but has subsequently gained recognition as a classic of realism, nineteenth century theatre, and world drama.
Come join us for a lively discussion as we debate whether Hedda is an idealistic heroine fighting society, a victim of circumstance, a prototypical feminist, or a manipulative villain.
If you are attending the Book Club discussion and would like to see the Northern New England Repertory’s production of the play in May/June, please contact library at 763-5803 for ticket info.
