Summary: Diana Rigg is the manipulative Hedda, who will not or cannot conform to what society considers "normal" for a woman. The arrival of an ex-lover on the scene gives her the opportunity to determine someone else's fate-but of course that is not what Ibsen was writing about.

Yet the evidence of Ibsen's life argues that he himself lived with a dual nature that went largely unreconciled.
