A new version of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler Written by Andrew Whittle

4 April 2024

“I don’t even know always what sets it off, but when it happens I’m not responsible for what I say or what I do.”


After a highly successful inaugural run in Malvern last year, Here To There Productions take their inspired adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s classic story out on the road with a 27-date UK tour.

Written by Here To There Productions’ Company Director, Andrew Whittle, this exciting new interpretation of one of theatre’s most revered plays was hailed a triumph by both critics & audience alike, enjoying a near sell-out run at The Coach House Theatre in Malvern.

It is a complex tale of female power, jealousy and manipulation, of drunkenness and sexual weakness, of competition between the sexes such as shocked audiences in the 1890s, yet still resonates with audiences today.

Arriving home from an extended honeymoon Hedda struggles to come to terms with her fledgling marriage. Having married for money not love she finds herself already bored with married life, aswell as her husband.

Brought up in a sheltered environment, Hedda had yearned for years to be married, to grasp life by the throat and enjoy herself, but instead feels trapped, buried alive with years of tedious, intolerable life ahead of her.

She plots to break that tedium by manipulating & toying with the lives of those around her…with consequences far greater than she could have foreseen.

Here To There Productions are a Midlands-based theatre company dedicated to bringing challenging, yet entertaining productions to audiences throughout the UK.

"It’s gratifying, at a time when light musicals so dominate mainstream theatre, to find a relatively small company tackling one of the dramatic masterpieces, and doing so in such a full-blooded a way."
