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.
