Hedda Gabler

Act Second
The room at the TESMANS' as in the first Act, except that the piano has been
removed, and an elegant little writing-table with the book-shelves put in its place.
A smaller table stands near the sofa on the left. Most of the bouquets have been
taken away. MRS. ELVSTED'S bouquet is upon the large table in front.--It is
afternoon.
HEDDA, dressed to receive callers, is alone in the room. She stands by the open
glass door, loading a revolver. The fellow to it lies in an open pistol-case on the
writing- table.
HEDDA.
[Looks down the garden, and calls:] So you are here again, Judge!
BRACK.
[Is heard calling from a distance.] As you see, Mrs. Tesman!
HEDDA.
[Raises the pistol and points.] Now I'll shoot you, Judge Brack!
BRACK.
[Calling unseen.] No, no, no! Don't stand aiming at me!
HEDDA.
This is what comes of sneaking in by the back way.(7) [She fires.
BRACK.
[Nearer.] Are you out of your senses---!
HEDDA.
Dear me--did I happen to hit you?
BRACK.
[Still outside.] I wish you would let these pranks alone!
