In the Company of Actors synopsis
This documentary follows as actors from the Sydney Theatre Company rehearse Henrik Ibsen's play "Hedda Gabler" with Cate Blanchett in the title role. Meticulous director Robyn Nevin puts her cast through the wringer, fine-tuning their performances against a quickly approaching deadline. Still, it's an open question whether or not audiences at the Brooklyn Academy of Music will respond to the troupe's risk-taking production. As the curtains rise on opening night, they're about to find out.
