A house is a monument. It stands, unchanged, while leaves and time and teardrops fall all around its walls. They say some houses can never be homes, that some houses are born evil. They say this about people, too. An immersive reimagining of «Hedda Gabler», with inspiration drawn from the music of Yes We Mystic
, «Hedda, Reimagined» beckons you deep inside a lonely house, a house with a restless spirit and a ravenous hunger for something lost a long, long time ago. They say some houses are born evil…

Content Warnings: The original play of «Hedda Gabler» ends with (spoiler alert) suicide. This play will not. We're all a little tired of that sort of thing. But this play is still about feeling trapped, and unable to escape. Also, gunshots. And darkness.
Washrooms: The house has two gendered washrooms with individual stalls. A gender neutral staff washroom is available if required!
ASL Performance: Due to the nature of this piece, an ASL performance will not be offered during the run.
Tickets: As always, PWYCA!
