About.

‘I want this life and more. I want to see you, lady of the house, presiding yourself like Queen Nefertiti, over all of them.’

Heather is newly married.
She’s finally living the life she always dreamed of.
She hates it more than she can bear.

Trapped in a conventional life brimming with social expectation and outdated ideals, free spirited Heather is plagued with thoughts of the freedom and passion she once knew. When she sees her life and sanity begin to unravel, she knows she must take control and break free of the box she has been put in.

Following the success of his play Go, Girl (as part of Out West), Roy Williams returns to the Lyric with his new play Heather, a radical retelling of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler through a modern lens of racial identity, class divisions and addiction. Directed by the award-winning Ola Ince (Is God Is, Royal Court).
