All the rooms reek of lavender and rose petals. There's something dead about it. Like flowers the day after a ball. Returning to her home town in the house of her dreams, her husband with a new job on the horizon, and a feeling of change in the air. Yet, for Heather, there is only the feeling of boredom, a feeling as futile as it is fatal. A powerful and emotionally charged play about a woman's separation and isolation from the affluent, materialistic society that she has become a part of. Set in 1960s Edgbaston, Heather Gardner is a fresh and stylish new take on Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. It is written by one of the UK's most promising young writers Robin French, whose 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.
