Lucid by Proxy returns after three years with this stunning original re-imagination of Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler, conceived, written and directed by LbP Founding Producer Valerie Rachelle.
In Save Me, Hedda, the daughter of a prominent, recently deceased politician, fights for her own sanity as she navigates a secret love triangle of her mild, professorial husband, a passionate and obsessive writer, and a smooth, cynical political operator. It is Lucid by Proxy’s 19th production, and our return to Los Angeles theater after three long years.
This contemporary retelling uses a soulful soundtrack and actor-driven movement pieces to help tell the story, layering them in with traditional theatrical storytelling to create an experience that connects the audience viscerally to Hedda’s journey.
Note: Save Me contains harsh language, sexual situations and loud noises, and so may not be appropriate for all audiences.
