Shooting Hedda Gabler (London, Rose Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

Shooting Hedda Gabler



When offered the lead part in a Norwegian film adaptation of Hedda Gabler, an American actress seizes the opportunity to escape Hollywood - and gain some artistic credibility. She’s running away from her past as a child star, from her present as a tabloid punchline, and from an unfortunate collision between a self-driving Tesla and a member of the paparazzi. But most of all - she's running away from herself.

What awaits her in Norway is a film set where reality and fiction are blurred by Henrik, the brilliant and demanding director. With every moment being filmed and with the arrival of one of her real-life exes, she becomes unmoored and paranoid. As the atmosphere on set becomes increasingly claustrophobic, Henrik becomes fixated on how to end the movie with a bang.
