Stuck in a loveless marriage, bored, pregnant, and facing financial constraints from her new husband — Pear Theatre presents Henrik Ibsen's intense “Hedda Gabler,” with Artistic Director Betsy Kruse Craig in the title role, directed by Dale Albright. Hedda manipulates the people around her to try to improve her situation, but only brings herself more tragedy. Was Hedda a spoiled woman, toying with lives out of boredom and selfishness? Or a woman desperate for love and autonomy, trapped in a society that allowed her neither? A powerful personality incompatible with the social conventions of her time, Ibsen's inscrutable 'antiheroine' has intrigued (and enraged) audiences for almost 130 years.
