Press coverage

Martin Nordvik, Adressa:

"The adaptation in question of Henrik Ibsen's intricate text seems clearing and efficient. To lift the action to our time is not just acceptable - but near necessary to give the play dramatic life."

Yngve Kvistad, VG:

"Hedda Gabler at Trøndelag Theatre is a consistent performance, intelligently directed with fine actors in all ages. It breaks with Hedda anno 1890, but conveys an unfiltered Ibsenesque destiny in its own contemporary age."

Andreas Wiese, Dagbladet:

"...at its terms this is an intense and successful modernisation of the play, in a direct and new version"
