WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Strindberg's deep distrust and fear of women is nowhere more evident than in his play The Father, a psychologically riveting drama about marriage, obsession and insanity that recaptures the passion and grandeur of Greek tragedy. Captain Adolf may be retired from the wars, but no battle he has ever fought is as threatening as the Victorian contest of wills between he and his vicious, self-righteous wife Laura. Their struggle has spiraled out of control, compromise is unthinkable, only one of them will survive. A nightmarish precursor to Albee's Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Strindberg's The Father is an earlier, revelatory look at marriage and the endlessly fascinating, relentlessly brutal battle between the sexes. Anders Cato, who also directed the BTF Unicorn production of Strindberg's Miss Julie, will direct. Box Office Hours: Monday-Saturday 10:30am-7:00pm Group Sales Number (25+): 413-298-5536 Ext33 Appropriate For Ages: 17+
