Heddatron

by Elizabeth Meriwether

directed by Alex Timbers

Les Freres Corbusier finally transforms Ibsen's classic into something truly well-made: A robot. Half a dozen of them. Live onstage. Really. Les Freres continues its irreverent massacre of historical icons and academic esoterica by taking on famed playwright Henrik Ibsen, the well-made play, and contemporary issues in robotics. Ibsen is thwarted by August Strindberg and his kitchen slut throughout his fevered struggle to write the great feminist drama, Hedda Gabler, while a contemporary housewife in Michigan is abducted by robots and forced to perform Ibsen's masterpiece over and over again...
