Schreiner University Theater presents ‘Hedda Gabler’

The Schreiner University Theater troupe will perform Henrik Ibsen’s “Hedda Gabler” at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday night Feb. 22 and 23, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 24 in the Hanszen Fine Arts Theatre.

Admission to the production is free to Schreiner students and $2 for adults and other patrons.

Ibsen, a Norwegian playwright, is known as one of the world’s greatest dramatists. He lived from 1828 to 1906, and was a leading figure in the artistic renaissance that took place in Norway.

In 1877, Ibsen began writing a series of plays that delve into the faults of society and class. “Hedda Gabler” is a detailed picture of how society worked back then, and it sketches the differences between the bourgeois and aristocratic worlds.
