The Curtainbox Theatre is taking us back to 1890s Norway in Henrik Ibsen's classic and sometimes controversial "Hedda Gabler." Directed by SAU alum and faculty member David Bonde '93, this show contains a slew of SAU alums, faculty and students. SAU faculty member Kris Eitrheim is acting as the scenic designer with technical director and SAU alum Joe Goodall '03.
The play features a woman, Hedda Gabler (played by producer Kim Furness '96) who is in a loveless marriage with an academic (Mike Shulz), only to have their lives overturned by an old rival of her husband's (Adam Clough). Filled with an impressive supporting cast, including Dr. Cory Johnson, Erin Churchill, Patrick DuLaney, and Denise Yoder, the audience is guided through the life of this one woman who cannot be described as either a heroine or a villain.
"This show is one of the first in feminist exploration," says Dr. Johnson, who portrays Aunt Julianne Tesman and is the play's costumer. "It shows a smart woman exploding in an oppressive society."
The show is set to perform from Nov. 16-30. General admission: $20, senior citizens: $15, and student (with ID): $12.
So mark your calendars and come out to see the classic and profound drama, "Hedda Gabler," while you can!
