The Feminine, Africa, and Constructing an African Hedda Gabler
Playwright and arts commentator Bonnie Greer gives the 2017 Lady English lecture and discusses her adaptation of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler in which she casts Hedda as an African woman. She will talk about why she believes many male adapters have got Hedda wrong, what she thinks Ibsen intended, and the notion of ‘Africa’ and people of African descent in the ‘West’.
