Review - The Father - Trafalgar Studios

So me: fan of Strindberg. So Traf Studio 2: great productions in a small space. What, then, was this stinker doing clogging up the place? Strindberg is an expert at detailing how two people – especially two married people – can make each other’s lives a living hell. 344 more words

Creditors

You don’t see any Strindberg for ages, then two come along at once. I went to the Brockley Jack Studio Theatre to see Creditors, a short play adapted by Neil Smith from Strindberg’s original. 153 more words

Theatre

The Father

August Strindberg’s 1887 drama The Father comes to the smaller of the Trafalgar Studios in a new production by Laurie Slade, directed by Abbey Wright. Shortened to an hour and forty minutes, it is an intense experience, but a worthwhile one. 360 more words

Theatre

The Father, Trafalgar Studios

Originally written for Exeunt.

For August Strindberg, love is war. It’s apt then, that the protagonist of The Father is an army Captain, a man who can only see marriage in military terms. 536 more words

A Designer's Wet Dream Play, by Dr Sharkey

This writer attended David Kennedy’s production of Caryl Churchill’s adaptation of August Strindberg’s A Dream Play on Friday, March 27, 2015. This writer now feels it is important to prove this play was ahead of its time when it was first produced and that it foreshadowed the art to come in the 20th century. 481 more words
