“Local stage veteran Kevin Klassen cleverly deconstructs and reassembles Hamlet in this intensely compelling take on Shakespeare's great tragedy.” – Joff Schmidt, CBC Radio, 4 Stars
One of Ibsen’s most iconic plays, Hedda Gabler is the portrayal of a woman trapped by society, her station, her body and her mind. This intimate production of 19th century realism will be brought to life in the parlour of the 1895 Dalnavert Museum in downtown Winnipeg by an all talented and all local team.
