Hedda Gabler & Sirens: Elektra in Bosnia



Judith Thompson


Playwrights Canada Press

Alive with Judith Thompson’s trademark grit and raw dialogue, Hedda Gabler & Sirens: Elektra in Bosnia is a contemporary reimagining of two controversial female protagonists in literature, and the marginalized voices of women in history.

In Hedda Gabler, a moving exploration of female oppression, a recently married Hedda navigates her new identity as a wife and the intense constraints put on her by society. She prefers pistols to cooking and does not care for raising a family. As Hedda fights against the pressures of her new life and her own neuroses, she comes to terms with an untimely choice.

Sirens: Elektra in Bosnia is a gripping story about the horrors of collective and personal wars as a family torn apart by death and destruction becomes their own worst enemy. When a deal between Agamemnon and his brother Menelaus goes awry, Iphigenia becomes the blood sacrifice leading to truths her sister Elektra can no longer hide from. Against the backdrop of a family drama, Judith Thompson gives voice to the women who were silenced during the Bosnian War, examining a cultural trauma and its place in our collective history.
