RESOLVING HEDDA a world premiere comedy by Jon Klein
Hedda Gabler, very tired of dying every performance, rebels against Ibsen’s play and tries to outwit the inevitability of her own fate. Pirandello meets the Marx Brothers, as Hedda embarks on a mission of sabotage.

HEDDA: late 20’s early 30’s; very attractive, alluring, smart, temperamental.
AUNT JULIA: late 50’s to 65; stuffy and easily offended, protective of her oblivious nephew, and very distrustful of Hedda.
THEA: late 20’s early 30’s; modest and pretty, though not a raving beauty like Hedda. A small town girl and a bit naïve. Capable of flashes of anger, though.
GEORGE: mid to late 30’s; he is bookish and timid. An absent-minded professor type. Yet he must be capable of some basic innocent charm as well, for Hedda to become jealous when she begins to lose him to her rival at the end of the play.
EILERT: mid to late 30’s; fiercely handsome, passionate, the center of attention when he walks into any room. Any woman would throw herself at him. Yet he’s also arrogant, overly dramatic, and surprisingly sexist.
BRACK: 50’s or early 60’s; an attractive judge, extremely articulate and clever, subtly lecherous, a master of the double entendre
All actors must be able to handle serio-comic material and the play is a period costume comedy set in Ibsen era 1891.
