Hedda is a play by Henrik Ibsen about a young woman, Hedda Gabbler. When we meet Hedda she is recently married to Tesman who she all but detests. She is the type of character you love you hate . She is completely self involved. Her favorite past time includes playing with guns!

She flirts with men and one in particular, young Eibert. Hedda tries to exert control over him, stemming from a brief romance before she was married. Hedda advises him to commit "beautiful" suicide.

She is a different cookie, Ibsen really developes his play by giving voice to really disturbed characters that Play out well in this drama.
