IRT Theater will present Wandering Bark Theatre Company's production of Henrik Ibsen's Hedda Gabler, rendered by the company as Hedda (Gabler), September 23-October 8 at the IRT in Manhattan.

Adapted by Matt Minnicino, the limited engagement will be directed by Joseph Mitchell Parks. The cast will feature Quinn Franzen, Terence MacSweeny, Kathleen Marsh, Valerie Redd, Kyle Schaefer and Susanna Stahlmann.

This production of Hedda, according to press notes, is described as such: “Hedda Tesman (née Gabler) has everything, but wants none of it. Sealed in the coffin of a big house, a convenient marriage to a boring husband, and a dead-end existence as a woman in a man's world, Hedda can do nothing but dream and decay. But when an old flame flickers back under her palm, her hungry heart ignites a blaze of lust, deceit, and manipulation that could consume more lives than just her own.”

The staging will also have choreography by Brad Landers, scenic and lighting design by David McQuillen Robertson, costume design by Jason Frey, sound design by Kevin Novinsky and assistant sound design by Jordan Antonucci. The production stage manager is Aldora Neal, and the stage manager is Lyndsey Barratt.

Producers are Wandering Bark Theatre Company and Jack Sharkey.

Performances are Tuesdays-Saturdays at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.

IRT is located at 154 Christopher Street NYC #3B (third floor). Tickets, priced $15-$18, are available by clicking here or by calling (800) 838-3006.
