Reviews (in Lithuanian):
Premieres of quarantine: Koršunovas' fatigue, deconstructed Hedda and marathon of climaxes
"Resolving Hedda" proves the directorial direction of U. Bartoševičiūtė already established in here previous works: feminist literature or interpretation <...>. "Resolving Hedda" does not show the audience a family drama <...> but rather a deconstruction of the play and society itself".
Aušra Kaminskaitė for LRT.LT
You can't not use the gun
"Klein's play and the show opens up a few thoughts: while watching the same storylines, an audience member will always await for the death of the famous, classical characters for even thousands of times whereas the dramaturge and the director, while destroying the famous myth of the sturdy Hedda, will show her from a completely different perspective."
Miglė Munderzbakaitė for 7 meno dienos.
To solve the riddle of Hedda Gabler: x - equals anxiety?
"It seems like the director within this interpretation of Gabler choses to inverse the original approach of Hedda's relations with people surrounding her as proposed by Ibsen: although Gabler is the victim of circumstances and is stuck in a man's world, here she doesn't dictate rules - she plays along everyone's demands."
Laura Šimkutė for menufaktura.lt
To break free from yourself
"The show "Resolving Hedda" is a clever postmodern game, interesting not only in its feminist perspective of portraying women in art but also as an intellectual riddle on vitality of characters as well as a psichological drama, where its main character Hedda fights herself, trying to overcome the patterns of her emotions and behaviours. Feminist perspective aids Hedda to fight for survival but will she succeed to break free from herself?"
Ieva Tumanovičiūtė for 7 meno dienos.
