HENRIK IBSEN'S HEDDA GABLER AT CAL STATE L.A.

Los Angeles, California -- February 7, 1996 -- Some of the leading actors from the Department of Theatre Arts and Dance at California State University, Los Angeles join with professional actors from East L.A.

Friday and Saturday performances start at 8 p.m. and Sunday matinees are 2:30 p.m.

Directed by Emmett Jacobs, this classic play explores the roots of feminism in the 20th century through a beautiful woman with passions too great for her comfortable marriage and too incendiary for a repressive society.
