What do Mother Teresa, Napoleon and Hitler have in common? Well, they all have what Hedda Gabler wants most of all. Courage. Courage to be yourself.

In this original new work, Cheers to you, Jenny! we meet Hedda Gabler as she’s just become a mum. A mum that is bored. In this modern adaption of the character, we get to know her as she is arranging the first birthday of her daughter Jenny. A celebration featuring cake, balloons and guns! 

Hedda Gabler’s meeting with motherhood has in no way been what she hoped for. Instead, it’s been exactly what she feared. She has followed the Norwegian manual for a harmonic and happy life, so why does she feel like she is rotting from the inside?  

In a symbiosis of child cry, cake decorations and existential philosophy, we follow Hedda as she reflects upon her own existence. It’s dark, comical and unpredictable. Just like Hedda herself. 

Indigo Arts Collective is celebrating International Women’s Day with a festival of original new work written and performed by women from across the country and around the globe. From thoughtful and funny to provocative and experimental, there’s truly something for everyone. Come celebrate women’s stories with us!

Cheers to you, Jenny! is written and performed by Lisa-Marie Flowers Larsen. It was financed by The Norwegian Arts Council and premiered in Oslo in 2020.
