Redwood Curtain’s 20th Season Continues With… The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler
by Jeff Whitty July 5 – 28 Directed by Catherine L Brown Beginning immediately after Henrik Ibsen’s classic ends, this hilarious romp finds Hedda Gabler mired in an alternative hell: a place where death is only possible when a fictional character is forgotten by the real-life public. So Hedda and her neighbors (including Gone With the Wind’s Mammy) set out on a perilous quest to return to the imaginative furnace of their creation. Along the way, they meet characters from science fiction, TV cop shows, Biblical dramas, as well as a couple of wisecracking “friends of Dorothy” from the 1960s.
“Jeff Whitty’s irreverent and witty reinvention of Henrik Ibsen’s most-possessed tragic figure Hedda Gabler…is wacky and poignant, a one-liner that becomes a thoughtful theater piece.” — Hollywood Reporter
