Mary Moody Northen Theatre, the award-winning producing arm of the St. Edward’s University professional theatre training program, kicks off its 39th anniversary season with the regional premiere of The Further Adventures of Hedda Gabler by Jeff Whitty, running September 29 – October 9, 2011.
From Tony-Award winner Jeff Whitty (Avenue Q) comes a crazy theatrical exploration of an imaginary universe where fictional characters must remain so long as we remember them, doomed to repeat their actions. Hedda Gabler keeps shooting herself, and Mammy her housemaid keeps cleaning up the mess. Tired of her selfish ways, Hedda sets off in search of her author for a full makeover, taking a bizarre contingent of characters with her. Featuring Equity guests Jill Blackwood, Jarrett King and David Stokey, this production promises to leave you laughing. No knowledge of Ibsen required.
“[C]elebrates creation and creativity … in a mad invention that is as fascinating as it is funny.”
