NOVEMBER 12 TO DECEMBER 3

AUGUST STRINDBERG REP PRESENTS STRINDBERG'S "PARIA & THE STRONGER" AND "ABU CASEM'S SLIPPERS" IN ROTATING REP
 

"Paria and The Stronger" unites two of Strindberg's most compelling one-acts of suspicion and discovery. "Pariah" is a blackmail scenario between a middle-aged Swedish archaeologist and a middle-aged American traveler. "The Stronger" is a spellbinding short drama for two actresses, one of whom speaks, the other doesn't. The former concludes over the course of three-quarters of and hour that the latter is her husband's lover.

Robert Greer, Artistic Director of August Strindberg Rep, has intercut the plays in a new translation so they can be staged side-by-side, in alternating dialogue, like a two-handed chess game. This intriguing fusion will be performed in rotating rep with a new translation of "Abu Casem's Slippers," Strindberg's version of an Arabian Nights tale "for children of all ages."
