At the website of Trøndelag Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Hedda Gabler:

"In this legendary play we meet Hedda as Mrs. Tesman. She is relatively recently married to Jørgen (often, in English translations, George, Sceneweb's comment), who has given her the dream house and a honeymoon as from a fairy-tale, but whom she doesn't love. For what became lost when Hedda Gabler became Hedda Tesman? What happens when a person goes against who she really is, and how dangerous is it, not to be who one is?

Given that Hedda Tesman is just a mask, a compromise, a cowardly gold-diggers prey after a headless hunt for a comfortable life, is there then any hope for the brave, uncompromised, truth-seeking person? For the real Hedda Gabler?

In this production, director Kjersti Haugen will examine how the contemporary free modern woman would have met the same challenges as Hedda."

Press coverage

Lillian Bikset, Trøndelag Teaters Hedda føler på tilværelsens uutholdelige uekthet (literally: Trøndelag Theatre's Hedda feels the unbearable fakeness of being), Dagbladet May 27 2016:

As Hedda, Stine Fevik is dressed in an orange dress. Flame-coloured fabric, sulfur-red hair. But this is a woman who feels like ashes. Burnt out, without meaning. She meets the world with the kind of closed attitude that springs out from the belief that nobody, anyway, will understand. At times she puts out more or less subtle hints, from self-deprecating admissions to mocking hysteria. Through them she finds the confirmation that nobody understands. Her husband Jørgen (Christian Ruud Kallum) is naïvely busy with his own things. The family friend Brack (Andreas Stoltenberg Granerud) is eager to get his. Eilert has moved on in life, or perhaps regressed. Thea marks her distance. Yet again, Kjersti Haugen stands for a clear-eyed, thought-through approach to an Ibsen classic at Trøndelag Theatre. (…) Hedda's masks, or perhaps we should rather call it Hedda's feeling of her own fakeness, is exhibited through a large digital portrait in continuous change - a Warhol-generic universalisation of the individual - Hedda/Fevik. In this the personal is blurred at the edges, almost extinguished, behind monotonous colour panels and contour-changing scribbles. Yet it is still, undeniably, her.
