In Hedda Gabler, Henrik Ibsen crafted a painfully real representation of the 19th-century angel in the house. Stripped of her individuality, Hedda is repressed by her roles as daughter and wife. The production channels themes of subtle misogyny through love, rage, and a gripping sense of cruelty that leaves Hedda and those around her to meet a tragic end.

Through March 9. $10-15, times vary. Gorilla Theater Productions, 1717 Allied Ln. Victory Hall Theater, 401 Valley St., Scottsville.
