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 their threeway web of deceit and shifting power grow 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.
