Fact: Barbra Streisand’s Malibu mansion is not only the subject of her book, My Passion for Design, but it also houses an indoor private shopping mall styled to evoke a picturesque turn-of-the-twentieth-century-street. Here, Jonathan Tolin’s play departs into the realm of “what if.” What if a struggling actor were hired as the only employee of this shopping mall? When the diva herself finally comes calling, something like friendship develops. But can a star that burns this bright ever really be touched? Like a voyeuristic fantasy-come-true, this is an irreverent and surprising exploration of fame and its consequences.

HEDDA

Adapted by Lucy Kirkwood from the play by Henrik Ibsen

Preview Performances: May. 8 – 9 | Wed. – Thr. 8pm

Shimberg Playhouse, Straz Center for the Performing Arts

Hedda, still mourning the father she adored, returns from her honeymoon with a husband she doesn’t love, to a flat they can’t afford and a pregnancy she doesn’t want. Trapped by her past and terrified by her future, bored by her life but too cowardly to walk away from it, she finds herself caught between three men. Ultimately, something has to give. In this updated version of Ibsen’s classic, set in 21st-century Notting Hill, thrilling young British playwright Lucy Kirkwood reworks the Hedda Gabler tale into a daring glimpse at her choices from a woman’s point of view.
