WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

This is the second installment of the three-part work in which Strindberg first introduced true surrealism to the stage in the theatrical representation of the dream. Strindberg's tale of life in decadent artists' circles of 1890s Sweden will be brought to life in 1960s California and its leading character, an alienated writer, has been re-envisioned as an author modeled on Amiri Baraka.

Although the events of the Trilogy are sequential, you needn't worry about what you have missed. The production will open with a six-and-a-half minute condensation of "To Damascus, Part 1," which was presented by August Strindberg Rep in 2014. Part 3 will be presented next year. This is the first time any company has presented the trilogy complete in any language in 99 years.
