We are delighted to welcome director Jen Heyes and David Hoyle for a Q&A following the screening.

Starring David Hoyle
Created, written & directed by Jen Heyes 
Composed by Tom Parkinson 

Set in a Lynchesque inspired world of dream imagery, drama, bespoke sound design, music and chanteuse style singing; the iconic avant-garde performer David Hoyle is HEDDA in this one-person, cinematic theatre reimagining that moves past the obvious to create a darkly surreal show that doesn’t reduce it to our binary traditions. As Ibsen said ‘Hedda is first and foremost a human being’ 

Shot on location at Soho Theatre, HEDDA (after Ibsen) is a 21st century unpicking of Ibsen’s original text from inside the hinterland of Hedda’s imagination. 

HEDDA (after Ibsen) is presented by CutToTheChase productions in association with Soho Theatre and was originally commissioned by The Arts Centre, Edge Hill University It has been funded by Arts Council England, The Arts Centre, and Soho Theatre.

Reviews

“David Hoyle gives us a beguiling, deadpan Hedda, sometimes through song, in a pungent and stylishly captured performance”
“Hoyle’s commanding stage presence combined with Heyes’ excellent direction as well as beautiful innovative cinematography and animation.”
"It stands to say that the cinematography in this production (directed by Jen Heyes) is nothing less than brilliant"
‘a stellar performance . . . Hoyle plays the perfect Hedda’
