Skylight at the New Theatre Royal, Portsmouth, October 15-19

Hedda Tesman at the Chichester Minerva Theatre, August 30-September 28
A doting husband. A troubled writer. A loaded gun. It’s 2019 and Hedda Tesman returns to a life she can’t seem to escape.
After 30 years of playing the domesticated wife, Hedda is bitter and bored. When her estranged daughter, Thea, suddenly reappears asking for help, the present begins to echo the past and Hedda embarks on a path of destruction.
Cordelia Lynn’s Hedda Tesman breathes new life into Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, asking what we inherit, what we endure and how we carry our history. Holly Race Roughan directs this vital exploration of motherhood, power and sabotage.

Sense and Sensibility at the Theatre Royal Winchester at Avington Park, July 14
The Pantaloons Theatre Company present a Jane Austen classic: Sense and Sensibility.

This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.
