One of literature's most complex and compelling anti-heroines, the beautiful and intelligent Hedda yearns to escape her marriage to a man she finds numbingly dull. Suffocated by the expectations and limitations of bourgeois society, she tries to fulfill her aimless desires by manipulating the fates of those around her no matter how dark the outcome. First produced in 1891, Henrik Ibsens masterpiece shocked European society; now, 125 years later, it continues to challenge audiences.

The play is performed in French by La Troupe du Thtre Raymond Kabbaz (TRKs Gang) and directed by Pierre Leloup. Treacherous lovers, wealthy heiresses and a Spanish general are flung together in a dizzying whirlwind of greed, lies and love. This high-spirited comedy is considered one of the greatest written by the king of French farce. Lucette has two lovers: Fernand Bois dEnghien, a neer do well who is secretly affianced to a Baroness daughter and a flamboyant Mexican general who challenges to a duel any man who comes near her. An amateur composer who hopes the lady will sing his song places his card in a bouquet sent anonymously and thereby seals his fate: the neer do well uses him to divert the generals flashing sword. Meanwhile, the neer do well is trapped in his skivvies outside his apartment. When the cops come to arrest him for indecent exposure, you can be sure it is the songwriter who goes to jail. The comedy vibrates with farcical situations and extrications before the truth is revealed.
