Hedda Gabler is a woman out of joint with her time. She is newly married but retains her own name. She is sexually eager but terrified of sex; ambitious and rebellious yet frightened of scandal. She is imprisoned by prospective motherhood and pursued by a sexual predator; she needs a way out. But can she find it?

Performances start at 7.30pm, and tickets are £12, available by ringing 01760 755800.
