Strindberg Rep Presents "The Black glove" by August Strindberg
Even people familiar with August Strindberg may be surprised to learn that he wrote plays for children. The best example is "The Black Glove," the fifth (and least performed) of his Chamber Plays. Its place in history has been obscured by a historical fluke: it premiered in 1911, after the close of Strindberg's Intimate Theater, which it was written for. This kept it out of many anthologies.
To share it with New York audiences-- and especially New York kids--August Strindberg Rep will present it November 30 to December 16 at Gene Frankel Theatre, 24 Bond Street, in the New York premiere of a verse translation by Anne-Charlotte Hanes Harvey. Director is Robert Greer, Artistic Director of the troupe. The piece is recommended for audiences age 8 and up and special family plans are being offered.
