Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" to be Performed at JBU

Siloam Springs, Ark (February 16, 1999) — Siloam Springs, Ark. - John Brown University's department of Drama will present Henrik Ibsen's "Hedda Gabler" beginning February 26, in the Cathedral of the Ozarks Jones' Recital Hall. "Hedda Gabler," considered by many as Ibsen’s masterpiece is a carefully-wrought, subtle, detailed study of the lives and passions of seven characters. Because this play explores the search for liberation and the sometimes disastrous consequences that follow this quest, it is considered to be focused for more mature audiences.

The production stars JBU senior Susan Edwards and freshman Joshua Williams, and is directed by Dr. Mark Fulk and Ms. Angela Fulk. There will be several performances, including Feb. 26-27 and March 4-6, which will begin at 7:30 p.m. There will also be a matinee performance beginning at 3 p.m. on Feb. 28.

General admission tickets are $7 and $5 for all students. Thursday, March 4 is student night and tickets can be purchased for this show for $3 with valid student identification.
