James Bridges Theater (U.C.L.A.)

Henrik Ibsen created one of literature’s most compelling characters in the beautiful and enigmatic Hedda, a woman who feels trapped and suffocated in her marriage. Hedda has just returned from her honeymoon with George, but finds herself ill-suited to the role of a housewife. Her desperate dissatisfaction leads to dangerous choices in this exhilarating contemporary adaptation by Doug Hughes. Debbie Devine directs Jocelyn Towne (LATW productions of God of Carnage, Fathers and Sons and Amadeus, TV’s The Kominsky Method. Lodge 49) in the title role.. Each of the four performances at UCLA’s state-of-the-art James Bridges Theater will be recorded live in front of an audience for future radio broadcast, distribution on CD, digital download and online streaming.
