Hedda Gabler is a play first published in 1890 by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. In it, Hedda Gabler, daughter of an aristocratic General, has just returned from her honeymoon with George Tesman, an aspiring young academic, reliable but not brilliant, who has combined research with their honeymoon. The reappearance of Tesman's academic rival, Eilert Lovborg, throws their lives into disarray. (Summary adapted from Wikipedia by wildemoose)

Cast of readers makes this version better at keeping track of the roles. Don't expect to much drama though. Oh, I wish there were a soundtrack... Fancy that, eh

Wow. I did not see that ending coming.
