WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Drama Desk Award winner Maggie Lacey (Horton Foote's The Orphans' Home Cycle at Signature Theatre) and John Douglas Thompson, returning to TFANA after his groundbreaking performance in Tamburlaine the Great (Drama Desk and Obie Awards), star in two provocative dramas about marriage.
Ibsen's A Doll's House adapted by Thornton Wilder, which premiered on Broadway in 1937, plays alongside August Strindberg's The Father, in a new version in English by Scottish author David Greig (Strindberg's Creditors at BAM) commissioned by TFANA. Writing The Father in response to A Doll's House, Strindberg offers his own startling vision of marriage and the battle of the sexes.
TFANA Associate Artistic Director Arin Arbus (King Lear) stages both plays performed for the first time in rotating repertory.
