Creditors (1888) is August Strindberg’s scandalous successor to Miss Julie. It is the author’s boldest statement about sexuality and one of the boldest ever put to paper. We tend to regard open marriage as unthinkable in Strindberg’s time. It was not.
The name August Strindberg is not usually associated with children’s theater, but he did write plays for children, including his final Chamber Play. This month “The Black Glove,” a lyrical fantasy directed by Robert Greer in verse translation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey, is being staged by the August Strindberg Repertory Theatre.
During the month of March (March 4 thru April 1), August Strindberg Repertory Theatre will stage two Scandinavian plays in repertory: Journey in Light and Shadow by Danish novelist and playwright Stig Dalager, and Marty’s Shadow by acclaimed Swedish writer Stig Dagerman.
