Langley, British Columbia—For Trinity Western University’s final main stage performance of the season, TWU Drama will present Henrik Ibsen’s play, Hedda Gabler on March 14-16 and 21-23. Winnipeg actress Kimberley Starmer will take the title role, playing Hedda, a character who plays risky games with the lives of others to serve her own needs.
“This play portrays the human desire to have power over others,” says Lloyd Arnett, chair of Trinity Western’s drama department who has produced close to 100 shows at TWU. “Empowerment, as this play shows, can lead to catastrophe when the potential for evil of those empowered isn’t taken into account.”
An author and playwright, as well as former instructor at the University of Pittsburgh and Penn State University, Arnett will direct the production.
Also joining the cast will be Christy-Lynne Guthrie of Langley, Dan Amos of Surrey, Nathan Drury and Krista Pera of Abbotsford, Kristin Howard of Vancouver, Washington and Robert Olguin of Littleton, Colorado.
Hedda Gabler plays March 14-16 and 21-23 at 8 p.m., in Freedom Hall on TWU’s Langley campus. All tickets are $10 and are available at the University Bookstore or at the door. For ticket reservations or more information, call 604-513-2058.
