Local businesses partner to make theatre more accessible to under 26s

05 January 2018

Passionate about making theatre accessible to everyone, the Grand Opera House, York, City of York Council and the National Theatre have partnered to offer anyone aged 26 and under the chance to see HEDDA GABLER, an unmissable production of the ultimate Scandi-noir in a version boldly retold for the 21st-Century, for just £5 per ticket.  

 

Following a sell-out run at the National Theatre, Hedda Gabler, an essential play for our times, is now on a UK & Ireland tour and will arrive in York for one week from 20 February 2018.

 

Whether young audiences are new to theatre or love seeing the latest shows, £5 tickets for Hedda Gabler will be bookable online, in person and via phone. Inspiring young people by making the highest quality theatre accessible to them backs the council’s continued support for the delivery of excellent cultural and educational opportunities and outcomes for all young people in York. 

 

From the makers of War HorseThe Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and Jane Eyre, this modern version of Henrik Ibsen’s masterpiece is intense, gripping and at times chillingly funny, taking the audience on a journey from laughter to the edge of their seat. 

 

Hedda and Tesman have just returned from their honeymoon and the relationship is already in trouble. Trapped but determined, Hedda tries to manipulate those around her, only to see her own world unravel.

 

An outstanding 5-star production is brought to bold new life by an award-winning creative team including director Ivo van Hove (Network with Bryan Cranston, A View From The Bridge) and writer Patrick Marber (Closer).
