EOSC Theatre to present Henrik Ibsen’s classic “Hedda Gabler” Nov. 15-17
WILBURTON, OK (Nov. 4, 2013) – The Eastern Oklahoma State College Theatre Department will present a dramatic tale of manipulation and tragedy in Henrik Ibsen’s classic nineteenth century drama, “Hedda Gabler.” The play will be presented Nov. 15 and 16 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 17 at 2 p.m. in Mitchell Auditorium in Wilburton.
The play, written by Norwegian playwright Ibsen in 1890, is considered a classic of realism. It centers around one of dramatic literature’s most famous female characters. Hedda is an independent, aristocratic woman who is bored and dissatisfied with her life and marriage.
“This is a story of a woman from a small town who, during her six-month honeymoon, experiences the larger world for the first time and then returns home to a small life,” said Marshall Carby, EOSC theatre director and instructor. “It’s extremely exciting for us to produce and bring to life a text that we study in humanities classes every year.”
The cast of “Hedda Gabler” include Hannah Truitt of Wilburton as Hedda Tesman; Clay Humphreys of Kiowa as George Tesman; Brekke Gammon of Violonia, Ark. as Miss Juliana Tesman; Valerie Evans of Maramec as Mrs. Elysted; Zach Olinger of Checotah as Judge Brack; Rodney Morris of Forney, Tex. as Eilert Loveborg; and Amanda Moore of Krebs as Berta.
Admission is $5 for adults and free for Eastern students with an EOSC ID.
