Perhaps this didn’t translate well
This kind of play has outlived its time. The story is not for today’s tastes. The actors all shouted and overacted. Hedda’s husband sounded like a woman with a low voice. The judge was the most natural but even he could not overcome the last terrible line of this awful play.
ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL PERFORMANCE
Shouting is not acting. Utterly over done. More like an amateur production. Returning for refund.
