Synopsis

A gripping new version of Strindberg's masterly, darkly hilarious depiction of the struggles and strains of marriage.

Meet Edgar and Alice.

Married for over thirty years, theirs is a relationship of explosive mutual loathing.

Strindberg's tale paints a compulsive and bitterly funny portrait of a magnificently doomed couple, whose ongoing battle threatens not only their future, but that of their friends and children as well.

This new version offers audiences a unique chance to see not only Part One but also the rarely performed Part Two of this masterpiece of European theatre condensed into a single two-act drama.

'ferociously intense... a howl of primitive power' <i>The Times</i>

'a blistering account of a mildewed marriage' <i>Whatsonstage.com</i>

'Howard Brenton has worked wonders... this fresh and exciting new version demands to be seen' <i>British Theatre Guide</i>
