Description

Why does a victim become a predator? In isolation, Ghislaine Maxwell maintains innocence whilst reliving the psychological abuse endured from her father. She unravels, fantasising that she is Hedda Gabler; both charismatic, beautiful and, above all, manipulative monsters in the female form. Devised and performed by Kristin Winters, with original music by Alexey Kochetkov. An exploration of privilege, entitlement, and the desire to control another human’s fate. 'Raw and sensitively handled… a triumph, as she made sure the manic nature of Ghislaine's mind was channeled both physically and vocally' (BroadwayBaby.com). Winner of Best International Show at United Solo NYC.

This was my Serious Drama show of the fringe and it was excellent. Incredibly well-done and an exceptional performance by the lead. I knew nothing about Hedda Gabler but they paired it really well with Ghislaine's story - unexpectedly and occasionally funny, well-written and devised, while leaving you feeling as if you had gained new insights into the woman herself. Kristin Winters is incredible and won't be in a venue this small for long.

Thoroughly uncomfortable and thought provoking. Very intense experience, well performed.

Dark, compelling, beautifully performed! Intriguing pairing of Ibsen and today's news. A really fascinating piece delivered by an exceptional actor. A mind-stretching Fringe show if ever there was one. Bravo.

Just saw this...
Drawing parallels between Ghislaine and Hedda, this mélange of deliberately disjointed dance and spritely character drama, offers a taste of Maxwell’s faux naïveté - that having been raised by a vile criminal, perhaps she never had a chance?
It’s in the movement that I found this piece most compelling ... the twisted body reveals the distortions that plagued Maxwell behind her « good girl » self-image.
An excellent performance...sincère, athletic, imaginative, beautiful and disturbing.

Go see this. Everyone knows enough about the back story to appreciate the complexity of the relationships this performance delves into, using character portrayal and physical movement. A stunning performance.

Go see this show! I was gripped to Christine's storytelling and the complicated journey this show goes on. Loved it!

In this challenging piece of theatre, Kristin Winters draws a parallel between the enigmatic Ghislaine and Ibsen’s anti-heroine, Hedda Gabler.
