Henrik Ibsen’s classic femme fatale masterpiece
With a distinguished father, a reputable husband, and a respectable home, Hedda’s life is beyond reproach. But she is a woman who is struggling with her identity, objectified and trapped by convention in a life she doesn’t want; and her only way out might be deadly. Ibsen’s classic drama of passion and desperation is about investigating what it is to be alive, and follows a dangerously irresistible woman as she rushes headlong towards a disaster that will embrace all those who have fallen fatally under her spell.
The Government Inspector
Nikolai Gogol’s classic comedy
Anton Antonovich, a mayor in small-town Russia, is in the midst of a crisis. A government official is on his way to inspect his district and, in Anton’s own words, “this is a disaster!” The streets haven’t been swept for months, there are chickens in the courthouse and Anton himself has been somewhat liberal with the mayoral accounts. The inspector is only too willing to overlook these misdemeanors in exchange for the odd generous bribe. But is he quite who he says he is or will Anton and his band of buffoons finally get what’s coming to them? This comedy of errors satirizes bureaucracy and corruption and was described as “The greatest play in the Russian language” by Vladimir Nabokov.
