Creditors


STARTS JAN 25, 2019


By August Strindberg  |   Directed By Barbara Damashek


Written in 1888, the same year he wrote Miss Julie, Strindberg’s Creditors is a powerful psychodrama about a sexual triangle taken to destructive extremes. Adolf, a painter who has taken up sculpture, has been befriended by Gustav, who both inspires him and feeds his mind with doubts about Tekla, Adolf’s novelist wife. In this real-time tragi-comic classic, we watch Gustav use his powers of manipulation first with Adolf, and then with Tekla, as their threeway web of deceit and shifting power grows ever more deadly. This exciting new version by Scottish playwright David Greig (The Events) has been called “both coldly objective and scathingly passionate” by the NY Times.
