Hedda Gabler: Considered a masterpiece of modern realism, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen creates a complex female heroine who, either courageously or maliciously, defies societal standards. Hedda Tesman, née Gabler, returns from her honeymoon with the reliable, but un-creative academic Jorgen Tesman to discover that Tesman's rival, the brilliant alcoholic Ejlert Lovborg, has published a wildly successful new book. Gabler's old schoolmate Thea Elvsted has left her husband to pursue a relationship with Lovborg and the two are working on Lovborg's next book. With Tesman's professorial position threatened by Lovborg, Gabler's jealousy of Elvsted surfaces. With great persuasive skill and armed with her father's old pistols, Gabler slowly destroys both couples' relationships.
