Hedda Gabler
by Henrik Ibsen

In March 1965, I saw the Grove City College production of Hedda Gabler. The girl who played Hedda was very good. She acted with her eyes and made no mistakes at all. The guy who played her husband was excellent for the part also. His real personality is so similar to the part, all he had to do was act naturally. I especially enjoyed it because I had just read the play and could compare my impression of it with their production. The production was better than reading it. Some lines when read seem flat, but when performed turn out to be funny.

Year Read: 1965
