Hedda Gabler, the daughter of an aristocratic and enigmatic general, has just returned from her honeymoon. Her husband is George Tesman, a young aspiring academic who is in line for a university professorship. Relying on his imminent appointment, he had borrowed money and bought a villa for his demanding wife, but Hedda returns from the honeymoon disillusioned, neither finding satisfaction in her husband nor her new way of life. The reappearance of George's academic rival, Lövborg, with whom Hedda had a youthful liaison, throws their lives into disarray: Hedda perceives their re-acquaintance as her would-be final chance at a fuller, more exciting life. She subsequently embarks on a dangerous game in which her father’s pistol, not by chance, will play a catastrophic role.

With “Hedda Gabler”, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen created a highly psychological sex and crime drama in which he touches on the dark side of domesticity and female independence.
