Hedda GablerStar of stage and screen, Sheridan Smith, makes another bold move with her new role at the Old Vic. Sheridan is possibly best known for her memorable comedic roles in a number of hits including the West End adaptation of Legally Blonde and her hilarious part as James Cordon's boisterous sister in BBC series Gavin and Stacey. But now she turns her hand to drama in the title role of Brian Friel's adaptation of Hedda Gabler. Friel had previous success with adaptations of Chekhov's Uncle Vanya and Three Sisters, and he will work on this project with esteemed director Anna Mackmin, who returns to the Old Vic after successful runs at Hampstead Theatre and the National Theatre. Sheridan - who was recently given both the Olivier and the Evening Standard Best Actress award - will surely be hoping for similar notoriety in this classic Ibsen play, which follows free-spirited young lady, Hedda Gabler, as she rejects convention and challenges social norms over the course of a fast and thrilling 24 hour period.

 

About Old Vic Theatre

With the exception of The Globe, the Old Vic has had a greater influence on the history of drama than any theatre standing today. From John Gielgud and Laurence Olivier, to Kevin Spacey and Judi Dench, the Vic has played host to generation after generation of stars since it opened its doors in 1818. More about Old Vic Theatre
