Thrilling, enigmatic, destructive, Heather Gardner brings to life one of Ibsen’s most irresistible heroines in a fresh and stylish new version.
It’s September 1962. Beautiful socialite Heather returns from her honeymoon to her dream home in Edgbaston where Neville Chamberlain once lived – but nothing is turning out as planned. Heather soon finds herself on a spiral of self-destruction, caught between her old flame Alec Lambart and the clutches of the predatory solicitor Peregrine Brand. There can be only one outcome.
Robin French was born and raised in Edgbaston, Birmingham. His first play, Bear Hug, won the Royal Court Young Writer’s Festival and was produced at the Royal Court in 2004, where it earned an extended run. He was chosen by The Guardian as one of the UK’s up and coming talents and has twice been chosen as a Hotshot by Broadcast magazine.
