The play focuses on Hedda's manipulation of people and her mood swings. She is a very dangerous character in deed but one cannot help but have sympathy for her .

There is a powerful performance by Alexandra Gilgreath who plays Hedda. She plays the part almost to perfection with the look and feel of a woman tormented and a voice so condescending and sarcastic .

The sets are beautifully designed by Pamela Howard, giving the room a nice 19th century look, and in the Donmar Warehouse because it is so small you feel you are in the time period yourself.
