Beginning immediately after Henrik Ibsen’s classic ends, this hilarious romp finds Hedda Gabler mired in an alternative hell: a place where death is only possible when a fictional character is forgotten by the real-life public. So Hedda and her servant, Mammy, set out on a perilous quest to return to the imaginative furnace of their creation. Along the way, they meet characters from science fiction, TV cop shows, Biblical dramas, as well as a couple of wisecracking, self-hating gay characters from the 1960s.
“The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler is loaded with wit and wonderful, satrircal moments.” — Beti Webb Trauth, Times-Standard
“Whitty’s script is generally inventive, clever, ribald, crude and graceful.” — Thomas Oliver, North Coast Journal
