Following a sold-out run at the National Theatre’s Lyttelton Theatre, the National Theatre will begin a UK tour of its acclaimed production of Hedda Gabler throughout 2017/2018.

The tour will visit Wolverhampton Grand Theatre from Tuesday 23 – Saturday 27 January 2018. Tickets will be on sale exclusively to Friends of the Grand from 11am on Monday 27 March and public bookings will open at 11am on Friday 31 March.

This vital new version of Ibsen’s masterpiece by Olivier and Tony Award®-winning playwright Patrick Marber (Closer, Three Days in the Country) is directed by Ivo van Hove, one of the world’s most exciting directors.  Olivier and Tony Award®-winning  van Hove made his National Theatre debut with Hedda Gabler, which is running in repertoire at the NT’s Lyttelton Theatre until 21 March 2017.  His acclaimed production of A View from the Bridge recently played to sold out houses at the Young Vic, in the West End and on Broadway.  Van Hove’s next production for the NT will be the world premiere of Network based on the Oscar-winning.  It will feature a UK stage debut for Bryan Cranston.

Set and lighting design for Hedda Gabler is by Jan Versweyveld, with costume design by An D’Huys and sound by Tom Gibbons. 

Patrick Marber said; ‘It has been a huge honour to work with the great Ivo van Hove on this version of Hedda Gabler at the National Theatre. I am thrilled that this tour will enable more people to see his incredible production.’

Casting will be announced soon.
